Unionist

Hon. N. W. ROWELL (President of the Privy Council):

I am not sure whether it is yet completed, but I shall make application at once to the secretary of the Civil Service Commission and, if it is, it will be laid on the Table. I understood from the commission that the delay was due to the fact that they could not take up the application of the classification until the House had finally passed upon the organization itself. The organization was a matter for the House to determine, and until that was disposed of the commission could not apply the classifieation to the existing staff. I shall inquire into the matter.
