ORGANIZATION AND ESTABLISHMENT OF PERMANENT STAFF POSITIONS-TEMPORARY EMPLOYEES PERFORMING CONTINUOUS DUTIES


The house having reverted to the order for motions.


LIB

Ernest Lapointe (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Liberal

Right Hon. ERNEST LAPOINTE (Minister of Justice):

The hon. member for Comox-Alberni (Mr. Neill) referred yesterday to the staff of the House of Commons. I find that a resolution of the house is necessary before the civil service commission and the governor in council can act in that respect, and I therefore move accordingly:

That the reorganization of the permanent staff of the House of Commons laid on the table on the 28th April, 1939, be now approved, subject to such further action as the commission of internal economy may deem advisable to take in order to implement the same.

I must say that the senate has passed a similar resolution with regard to its staff.

Mr. LAPOINTE (Quebec East):

May I answer this question verbally? It would be pretty hard to give an answer to the various questions. Under the economy of our election law, parties are not recognized and candidates are mentioned by merely their own names. So far as the election of 1911 is concerned, it would be still more difficult to give an answer, because some candidates who had run on a special ticket sat as members on another ticket when they reached parliament.
