Dr EARLE PAGE (Cowper) .- Now we shall be able to test the sincerity of honorable members opposite. Throughout this debate we have heard them claim that if the commission is to be appointed it should be trusted and given an absolutely free hand. Yet it is now proposed that the fixing of the salaries to be paid to the general manager and his six senior executives shall be taken out of the hands of the commission and placed under the control of the Government. That makes it possible for the Government to hamstring the operations of the commission by offering salaries that are absurdly inadequate for the jobs. These details should be left in the hands of the commission, and I hope that the committee will reject this amendment.
