Mr. CHABOT:

In the case of a possible increase in the numerical strength of the

Civil Service Commission, did the Civil Service, either through its federation or through any other channel, make strong representations to the Government to have one of its members appointed to the commission?

Mr. OHABOT:

Do the provisions apply to, or what other provisions have been made for, soldiers who unfortunately contracted the drug habit during prolonged treatment in hospital on the other side for very painful conditions, and who when they came back to their families here are not only useless but a burden to them? Those men are practically unsound in mind-mentally deranged.

Mr. OHBABOT:

I think at -all times patronage has been opposed to -the best interests of the Civil Service -and has to -a large extent-, contributed to the defeats of

many Governments in this country. After 1911, political patronage -in this city w-as -thrust upon me w-ith -a vengeance, and my life in Ottawa from 1911 to 1917 was a regular political hell on earth. If this Bill abolishes political patronage, which I consider at all times, an unsatisfactory and unfair method of making appointments, it will remove a grievance and the people of this country will be thankful and satisfied. Si-nce the passage of the Order in Council abolishing political patronage, my peace of mind hlas been greatly enhanced; a huge lo-ad has been taken off my shoulders, and I feel that my life has become worth living. If this legislation abolishes patronage, it will render the Civil Service more effective and efficient, and it will render to the people of this country a very valuable service.

Mr. OHABOT:

Reference has been made by an horn, member to the effect that the Outside Service was to be dealt with in thi-s Bill, and I would ask whether in the reorganization and reclassification of the Outside Service it is the intention through this^ Bill to place that service on the same footing as the Inside Service as regards appointments, promotion, salaries, and superannuation.
