Hon. ARTHUR SAUVE (Postmaster General) :
In answer to the question asked by the member for Temiscouata (Mr. Pouliot), I table a document showing the permanent appointments to revenue postmasterships made between August 7, 1930, and February 28, 1935, by provinces and electoral districts; also a document showing the temporary appointments to revenue postmasterships during the same period. Owing to certain comments made by a member, I must give to the house the reason for the delay in answering the question. The compilation of the list of these appointments required the perusal of more than 4,300 records and more than 1,000 supplementary hours of work, 360 of which were outside the regular hours, at night, on Saturday afternoon and Sunday. To answer as quickly as possible we had to suspend in part the regular work and to get it up to date, will require extra hours of work.
