James Murdock (Minister of Labour)

Mr. MURDOCK:

I call the attention of my hon. friend to the fact, that the gentlemen of the Opposition were taking entire exception to certain conditions, which had been handed down to us as heirlooms from our predecessors. All I was undertaking to do was to read what my predecessor prepared as chairman of the committee to deal with the subject. In other words, if that document was an accurate statement of the prerogatives and rights of the Civil Service Commission in October last, it must, of necessity, be a fairly accurate statement of the condition as of March 31, 1922, and that is all I wanted to bring to the attention of the committee.
