1. Executive, operating, traffic, and other officers of the Canadian National Railways are provided with a business car when their duties in travelling over the territory under their jurisdiction require such use.
2. Two business cars were given general shopping on the Atlantic region and six on the central region. In addition, three cars on the Atlantic region and eight on the central region were sent to the shops for light attention.
3. A chef is placed in charge of a business car when under movement.
4. No special record is kept of laid-off employees. To give an accurate answer to this question would involve an analysis of twenty-four semi-monthly payrolls over a period of twelve months covering between forty and forty-five thousand employees, which could only be done at the cost of considerable time and labour.
