I cannot remember his name, but the work is being done very efficiently, I believe, by a man who was a clerk.

I think he is a clerk, and may be advanced to a higher grade. Recently there has been some consideration regarding promotion or some advancement. *

Mr. POWER:

I cannot do so offhand, because whatever happened happened within the last month or two and my book is made up only to January 1. I am under the impression that some recognition has been made of the efficient service which he has been giving, but I would not like to commit myself definitely.

Mr. POWER:

I think that request is hardly reasonable on the part of my hon. friend. I shall be only too glad to give him all the information he wants, but does he think that the item should stand on account of one employee?

Mr. POWER:

One pensions advocate in Saskatchewan, Mr. Adams, has been here for the past year, because there is not enough work for him there and there is some work here. At present that work is wound up and it is not necessary to replace him.
