Mr. L. J. LADNER (Vancouver South):
Mr. Speaker, I wish to ask the Prime Minister a question with respect to order in council P.C. 1053, which extends the scope of inquiry of the Beatty commission. Under the order in council will opportunity be given to the civil service organizations, particularly the professional institute of civil servants, to make representations before the Beatty commission in order to correct anomalies as to' classification and salaries and the alleged omissions in the present Beatty report? That is will the functions of the existing committee still continue? If the Prime Minister will look at the order in council he will find the following:
The committee, therefore, on the recommendation of the Secretary of State, advise that a supplementary commission be issued to the said commissioners extending the scope of the inquiry to include such investigation, and also the advisability of fixing a minimum salary for employees in the civil service.
