§ The Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs (Mr. Shakespeare)
In previous cases the appointment of a High Commisioner in Canada has normally been for five years, but in the case of my right hon. Friend, the Member for Ross and Cromarty (Mr. Malcolm MacDonald), the appointment would, as has already been announced, be for the duration of the war. The salary is £2,500 with a representation allowance of the same amount. The post is normally pension able on a Civil Service basis, but in the present case, the question of pension-ability will not arise.
