Frederick Gordon Bradley (Secretary of State of Canada)

Liberal

Mr. Bradley:

The present salaries of the civil service commissioners are greater than those actually specified in the Civil Service Act, the authorization for this being obtained annually by means of a special item in the estimates.
It is the purpose of the present amendments to the act to avoid the necessity of having recourse to the estimates by providing that the salaries of the civil service commissioners shall be set by the governor in council, which may also, on the recommendation of the Prime Minister, retain the services of a commissioner beyond the age of 65 years.

Topic:   CIVIL SERVICE ACT
Subtopic:   AMENDMENT RESPECTING TENURE OF OFFICE AND SALARIES OF COMMISSIONERS
