April 6, 1922

Mr. CAMPBELL:

Is there more business in the department than previously? There is practically no immigration to-day, and I think that we might do without the vote entirely.

Mr. JOHNSTON (Last Mountain) :

There is a vote of $6,000 for a deputy minister. How long has the deputy been in the department? Was he in the service and in this particular department before he was made deputy?

Mr. STEWART (Argenteuil) : Thl

appointment was made either at the end of September or about the 1st of October.

Mr. JOHNSTON (Last Mountain) :

How long had the department been without a deputy before he was appointed?

Mr. CAMPBELL:

I would like to add to what has been stated by the hon. member for Saskatoon (Mr. Evans) in regard to medical inspection on the other side of the Atlantic. I have a case on my hands now of a Scotch family, the members of which bought their tickets and checked their baggage about a year ago. After they had gone through the preliminaries and were ready to sail, a doctor stopped one of the children, a little, girl, on the ground that she was mentally deficient. These people had sold all their goods in order to put themselves in funds for the voyage, and as a result of the doctor's action they had to postpone their voyage, and go to work, boarding out all the time.

Mr. CAMPBELL:

I spoke of paymasters and file clerks. There are quite a number at $2,100. Most commercial concerns hire a young boy or girl at $50 or $75 a month to fill similar positions.

Mr. CAMPBELL:

These are evidently not heads. On page 95 there are two file clerks, one at $2,160 and one at $1,920. Then on page 96 seven file clerks ranging from $2,100 down. Further down nine file clerks from $2,100 down. These cannot be all head file Clerks.

Mr. CAMPBELL:

A salary of $2,100 is too much for a file clerk. No business concern will pay such wages as that. Could the minister tell me what would happen to the working of the Civil Service if the House cut down that item, or the minister himself cut it down?
