Mr. Cole:

The term "penalize" is employed by my hon. friend. We did not have any intention to do that. We do not think we have penalized anybody. We were faced with the fact that we had to implement the 40-hour week and to do that we had to employ these people as relief men. It was done in 86 centres without any change being made. In 26 offices the senior men did not accept. There was no question of going over the senior men, but somebody had to do the job. Since they did not want to do that job, we had to employ other people.

Mr. Cole:

Maybe the form of the letter could be written otherwise, but these letters are sent to people in the field, in the locality where we are seeking information, because they are presumed to know better than anybody else. A member of parliament makes recommendations, but, as I said before, there is a lot of difference between suggestions, recommendations and appointments. I can assure my hon. friend that after the information is obtained we make the appointment only after an objective inquiry.
