Mr ROSEVEAR - Will the Prime Minister state whether it is .a fact that the Public Service Board is interpreting section 84 of the recently amended Public Service Act, which provides for the employment of returned soldiers to permanent positions in the Public Service after they have been in continuous temporary employment for two years, as meaning that they can be appointed only to vacancies created by the Board? Is this in accordance with the spirit of the amendment, seeing that the effect of it will be that many of these men will never obtain permanent appointments at all?
