Hon. Noel Dorion (Secretary of Stale):

Mr. Speaker, yesterday the hon. member for Port Arthur, referring to a newspaper article about patronage in appointments which, in part, quoted certain views of the chairman of the Civil Service Commission of Canada, inquired whether the federal government has revised its views along what he called the same line.

It is quite clear that Mr. Hughes was expressing a personal comment respecting an area of employment over which the federal government has no control, that is appointments to provincial positions which are outside the jurisdiction of the provincial civil service commissions.

In reply to the hon. member's question I would say that the government's views with respect to the federal civil service have been expressed from time to time, notably in the Civil Service Act passed by parliament within the past 12 months, in what was said in the debates on that bill, and in the regulations made under that act two or three weeks ago. These views have not been revised along any such line as the hon. member's question implies.

Hon. Noel Dorion (Secretary of Stale):

Mr. Speaker, yesterday afternoon I asked the chief electoral officer whether he had received any report, and he replied that he had not, as yet. Should he get that report today my good friend will be informed and I shall consequently make a statement in the house.
