Louis-Philippe Pelletier (Postmaster General)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. PELLETIER:

It would be too bad to see this Bill fall through. It provides for an increase in salaries for the railway mail clerks, and I take the view that the Senate has no right to amend what is a money Bill. They proposed an amendment to which I agreed, and after they had voted that amendment it came down, and the gentlemen of the press asked us for further concessions, which we consented to. When the Bill went back to the Senate, the Senate went back upon its first amendment. I understand that there is some desire that this should be made right, and I am moving that a message be sent to the Senate for that purpose.

Topic:   POST OFFICE ACT AMENDMENT.
