Mr. Macdonald (Rosedale):
A tariff of fees is established pursuant to clause 61(1) of the current bill. There is no fixed sum applicable to all returning officers; the amount depends upon the number of names on the electoral list and is determined during the course of each election. As to the second question, an attempt is made to appoint someone experienced in election procedures. The hon. member became a member of the House before I did, and no doubt he is familiar with the process on his side.
