Being a new member I
gladly bow to your decision, Mr. Speaker. I shall confine myself to explaining in a very few words the purport of my bill.
First of all, I want to exclude the outside service from the operation of the act. Secondly, as to appointments, I am asking the house to approve of the recommendation of the Senate committee in 1924, that in making appointments the Civil Service Commission ought to cooperate with the ministers and with the deputy ministers of the departments, and if both parties could not agree the matter ought to be referred to the governor in council for decision. Thirdly, I desire to amend that act. with regard to dismissals by substituting the words "head of the department" for the words "governor in council."
