William Stevens Fielding (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Mr. FIELDING:

No. That will come up at another time. There is a clause in the old Superannuation Act which authorizes the Treasury Board to grant additional years in fixing a retiring allowance. We think that some embarrassment may arise from that, and we propose to repeal that clause so that if in any case it is deemed necessary to make any addition to the amount granted it can be done by special appropriation by the House, instead of by act of the Treasury Board.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Topic:   CIVIL SERVICE SUPERANNUATION AND RETIREMENT ACT AMENDMENT
