May 12, 1902 (9th Parliament, 2nd Session)


The MINISTER OF FINANCE (Hon. W. S. Fielding).

I think the object of this resolution is to assure these officers of their present salaries in the transfer from one branch to the other. I do not think it would have the effect of preventing an increase, but that will have to be looked into. Of course, there can be no intention of interfering with these officers getting any reasonable and proper increase that they would otherwise receive.
Amendment agreed to ; and motion, as amended, agreed to.
