Hugh Guthrie (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GUTHRIE:

I cannot say as to that,
but I understand that they selected a committee and placed the applications before the committee to deal with. I know of one case -and I fancy that my right hon. friend the leader of the opposition will recall it-where the Civil Service Commission made an appointment some years ago and actually brought the man from Nova Scotia to fill it, but when he got here they reconsidered the matter and told him he could not have the position, and
Supply-External Affairs

appointed another man. But I do not know the modus operandi adopted by the Civil Service Commission in regard to these appointments, more than the fact that they advertise the vacancies.
