Clerk of the House to lay upon the Table his report and my recommendation in the matter of the promotion of Mr. T. P.

Ottawa, May 18, 1916.

The Hon.,

The Speaker of the House of Commons, Ottawa.

Sir,

The transfer of Mr. Albert Horton to the Senate Debates Staff creates a vacancy in the position of Editor and Chief of Reporting Branch of the House of Commons.

I beg to report that Mr. T. P. Owens, Associate Editor, is the proper person to be promoted to the position of Editor of Debates and Chief of Reporting Branch of the House of Commons.

I also beg to report that Mr. W. H. Dickson, who has been acting as Chief Reporter of the Committees of the House with the approval of the Speaker since 1906, should have the said title officially confirmed.

I am, Sir,

Your obedient servant,

(Sgd.) THOS. B. FLINT, Clerk of the House of Commons.

Mr. SPEAKER:

I might be permitted to say a few words on this. It is true that Mr. Sherwood was recommended to me and to the Government for the position. Mr. Sherwood is represented to the committee as being a young man; one would believe that he was a young man of about 15 or 16 years of age.

Mr. SPEAKER:

Because it is a very important position; and I think that this is

a matter that can be decided by the members of this House just as well as by the Civil Service Commission. I think that, for a married man who has a family, the salary of $1,600 a year, especially in these hard times, is a very reasonable salary for any position.
