Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):
Mr. Speaker, on November 26 last, during the course of the discussion on the bills that were then before the house for the establishment of three new departments, the hon. member for Peel (Mr. Graydon) suggested that when the departments were set up it would be convenient to have charts prepared showing the branches of the service that would be included in each new department.
The departments were set up in accordance with proclamations which were published in the Canada Gazette of January 28 at pages 320 and 321. We have had charts prepared showing the distribution of the branches of the service among the new departments, and I should like to table two copies of each of these charts and to say that they have been made available for distribution to all hon. members of both houses.
