Mr. A. W. NEILL (Comox-Alberni):
I desire to present a petition signed by H. R. Boulton and 121 other officers, chief petty officers and petty officers of the vessels of the various branches of the dominion government service on the Pacific coast. The preamble states that these officers desire to express their loyalty to the service, and their desire to continue in it, but that they are handicapped by the conditions of their service which force them to maintain two homes. This makes it impossible for them to make provision for superannuation. They point out that the service would be greatly improved if men were encouraged by such a system to join the service and make it a permanent life job. The preamble reads:
Wherefore, your petitioners humbly pray that your honourable house may be pleased to pass legislation allowing us to come under the Superannuation Act.
Subtopic: PETITION OF OFFICERS IN PACIFIC COAST SERVICES
Sub-subtopic: RESPECTING PROVISION FOR SUPERANNUATION
