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?
