June 12, 1941

Mr. CASGRAIN:

My hon. friend knows that if the messengers and other employees of whom he has just made mention are among the classes of employees mentioned in the resolution adopted by the house, they would come under the recommendation and would be made permanent. If not, it would be for the internal economy commission of the house to make a recommendation to the civil service commission; the civil service commission would deal with it; another motion would be made such as was made on June 10, and then they would be made permanent. It is a matter for the internal economy commission of the house; it is then referred to the civil service commission for investigation and further report of the commission, and thence to the house.
