CON

Arthur Meighen (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MEIGHEN:

I think in this case the salary is higher than in the case of the accountants that have been re-classified. When I see an extra piece of nomenclature after an officer's title I always become suspicious. That is the plan usually adopted should they want to get in a bigger salary than the classification allows. The

official then becomes something exceptional.
I notice here the accountant has become a purchasing agent. I think the minister would do well to look into the matter before he brings this estimate down as the proper salary.
