Does the department always take the finding of the commissioner appointed, or does it review the finding? I know of several cases where reports of commissioners have created great injustices. I am sure if the department had investigated, as it should have, it would not have come to the same conclusions as those arrived at by the commissioners.
cases reports of commissioners are not accepted. Although this matter does not arise in my own department, I do know where a commissioner recommended a dismissal, making a finding of political partisanship, but the minister did not regard the evidence sufficient to justify a discharge. I dare say in the majority of cases, if a commissioner
finds a man guilty and recommends dismissal, his advice is followed. However, I cannot say to what extent that is done.
