Mr. Chairman, it seems to me that there is an inconsistency in the addition of one part of that clause. It provides, as it is now, that:
-the Commission may, with the approval of the Governor in Council, exclude such position or positions in whole or in part from the operation of the Act,-
That power of exclusion is given to the commission with the concurrence of the Governor in Council. Then the section goes on that the commission may:
-make such regulations as are deemed advisable prescribing how such position or positions are to be dealt with.
Well, if those positions are excluded from the Act what further has the Civil Service Commission to do with them? Should not words be added there that the Governor in Council shall make such regulations? I want to make it clear that

that will be the position, and that these positions being excluded from the Act the commission have nothing more to do with them.
