Hon. JOHN HAGGART (South Lanark).
Why does not the Postmaster General apply the principle to all the departments ? It is an anomaly that a porter and a messenger in the post office department should be removed from the section of the Civil Service Act which at present applies to all the departments, and that they should come under a different rule. If this is an improvement, the hon. gentleman should offer an amendment to the Civil Service Act to make it applicable to all the departments.
