Mr. SPEAKMAN:

In that case, is it necessary to provide for both salaries? Would it not be sufficient, in cases like that, to provide for a salary to cover the higher position of the two, because the greater always contains the less, and in case the promotion was not made, the salary appropriated for the higher position would still pay the salary of the lower position.

Mr. SPEAKMAN:

I notice that the purchasing department has been increased to this extent: there are three junior purchasing agents instead of one; two purchasing agents as there were before; and they have dropped one assisting purchasing agent, making five agents altogether instead of three. Is this due to reclassification? That is, are they the same men under different names? If so, are the former positions which they held still provided for by duplicated statements, or have they been abolished?

Mr. SPEAKMAN:

I wish to ask a question, and I am not asking it in a controversial way. It arose from a statement made by the Prime Minister, which struck me as being of considerable importance, and I should like to get a clear understanding of it. If I mistake not, it was said that, not only in this department, but in others, the necessity arose at times practically to duplicate positions in the Estimates in order to provide for possible or probable promotion from one position to another, and in order to allow for that, a salary was provided for each position, with the understanding that only one salary would be used.

Mr. SPEAKMAN:

I am not making any reflections; I am simply making a statement of fact as it exists. I am not reflecting on the intentions of the hon. gentlemen who passed that act; possibly they had absolutely correct intentions.
