Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. SUTHERLAND:

At the present time we are not taking on any men, because the estimates have been cut, and the wastage, that is the gradual dropping out of men, is very small. Consequently there are practically no new openings.

No, the 66 are men that we have from the royal navy who have been on loan. Now I have the information as to pay: Ordinary seamen, $1.25 a day; stokers, $1.35; artificers, $2.10; artisan ratings, $2.10. Then they take on some younger boys at 60 cents a day.
