CORRESPONDENCE RESPECTING RETIREMENT OF DOCTOR H. M. TORY AS CHAIRMAN, TABLED


On the orders of the day:

Mr. F. G. SANDERSON (South Perth):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question to direct to the Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Hanson). On June 19 last the minister tabled the correspondence with regard to the retirement of Doctor H. M. Tory as president of the national research council. There was one letter which he did not table and if you will permit me, sir, I will quote what the minister said in respect to that:

I should like to say that in a letter to me dated March 7, Doctor Tory made certain representations. This letter was marked "personal," and for that reason it is not included in the file; otherwise it would be produced. I have not been able to get Doctor Tory to release the privilege as he is not in the city.

I would ask the minister if he has yet got the consent of Doctor Tory to release that letter.

Jean-François Pouliot

Liberal

Mr. JEAN FRANCOIS POULIOT (Te-miscouata):

Mr. Speaker, on May 5 a letter

was addressed by myself to somebody in town. The address contained the name and number of the street, and below that there were in French the two words "en vil'le," which

Distribution oj Voters' Lists

means city. That 'letter has been returned to me by somebody at the post office because they said there was no such post office in Ottawa. This is not the first time because a letter thus addressed that was on its way to the west was stopped in Winnipeg. May I ask the Postmaster G-eneral, who calls himself the champion of the French language, if he would teach French to such employees of the Post Office Department.

BOARD OF RAILWAY COMMISSIONERS

APPOINTMENT OF SECRETARY


On the orders of the day: Mr. GEORGE W. McPHEE (Yorkton): Mr. Speaker, this morning's paper contains notice of the appointment of a secretary to the board of railway commissioners. As the Minister of Railways (Mr. Manion) is not in his seat I will direct my question to the Prime Minister. Was this position filled by the civil service commission, and if so, how many applied)? If it was not filled by the civil service commission, by whose direction was the appointment made?

Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister) :

The position was filled by the governor in council, not by the civil service commission. The gentleman appointed secretary to the commission had been assistant secretary for some years, and with the falling off of work was released from his duties about two or three years ago. He is now appointed to the position of secretary, he having formerly been assistant secretary. The recommendation was made by the Minister of Railways, I think, in due course.
