Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. R. L. BORDEN.

I would like to inquire whether or not it is the intention of the government to introduce any resolutions upon which the Civil Service Bill will be founded. In looking over the Bill since its introduction I observe that it creates additional charges upon the public revenues of the country, in some cases by way of increase and in other cases by way of addi-

tionul appointments and offices which involve salaries. I think it is perfectly clear, under the authorities which are quoted in Bourinot, pages 569, 638 and 664, that in so far as these portions of the Bill are concerned, they must be founded upon resolutions and with the view of expediting the progress of the Bill, I thought it best to call the attention of the government to what seems to be an omission in order that the necessary resolutions may be introduced at the earliest possible moment.
