December 11, 1962 (25th Parliament, 1st Session)

PC

Robert Jardine McCleave (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Works)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. McCleave:

Mr. Chairman, while we were not able to take down the amendment suggested by the hon. member, it seemed to us to have a defect in that it would not comprehend bylaws with regard to staff matters. That was one of the reasons, as the minister has explained, why this clause was phrased in just such a way. There will not only be a board and subcommittees, but there will also be the responsibility on the board and its executive director to hire staff, and to make pension arrangements, salary arrangements, and what-not with them. All these matters are covered under the provision relating to bylaws, but under the proposal of my hon. friend from Cartier they would not be covered. That is why we adopted this language in the bill.
