May 13, 1953

Mr. Bradley:

I have no knowledge of this particular article which has been mentioned by my hon. friend. I can only say that, from the standpoint of the chief electoral officer, that is not the case.

Mr. Bradley:

The salary of the official in question is not, of course, set by this department. However, I would be quite willing to bring the matter to the attention of the civil service commission and treasury board. Meanwhile I may say that recently we added another solicitor to the staff in an endeavour to speed things up.

Mr. Bradley:

A decision has been reached to go ahead with the construction of the national library, and the site has been selected. I do not think the plans have yet been prepared. I do not think there is any amount in the public works estimates for construction, but it is proposed to proceed with the construction of a national library as soon as possible.

Mr. Bradley:

I would not undertake to

answer that question offhand. It will depend on the statute. If under the statute they come under the civil service commission, then that is the way they are appointed. If on the other hand there is some special statute which provides some other method of appointment, say by order in council, then they would be appointed in that way.
