I have no objection to Mr. Ross getting the $1,700, I am satisfied that if he were not worth it, the deputy would net recommend it. But I will remind the minister that last year, when the government were amending the Civil Service Act, if they had accepted the proposition I made that all first-class clf/'ks should be given a yearly increase of $100, Mr. Ross would have had the $1,700 this year without any trouble, and without being under any compliment. Is it the intention of the minister, in the case of officials who have not received their statutory increases, to make them up to them ?
