Mr. D. S. Macdonald (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Justice):

1. The present pay classification grades provide a remuneration to professional penitentiary staff according to their academic qualifications and years of experience.

2. There are no monetary incentives, other than qualifying for promotion, for custodial staff in the Penitentiary Service. All custodial staff, irrespective of length of service, are required to undergo a continuing on-the-job training and refresher training, and those who seek promotion at the various levels have to qualify on specific centralized courses at the Correctional Staff Colleges. In this manner, a standard of proficiency is maintained and those individuals who have the capability and are suitable, have the opportunity to increase their knowledge and improve their ability through centralized courses.

3. All custodial staff who participate in centralized courses at a Correctional Staff College are given basic instruction in behavioural sciences by qualified staff. This includes custodial recruits.

4. This matter is presently under consideration.
