TREASURY BOARD OVERRULINGS.
RE PAYMENT IN CONTRAVENTION OF SECTION 33 OF THE " CIVIL SERVICE
ACT, 1917."
December 10th, 1918.
The Government Agent, Kamloops, B.C.
Deab Sir,—With reference to your Voucher No. 1554 for $15 in favour of Z. Slavin, please
advise if this is the same Miss Z. Slavin who has a permanent position as stenographer in your
office.
Should it be one and the same person, I shall be glad to be advised of the circumstances
under which Miss Slavin has been paid the amount above referred to, as, without further
information, it would seem these payments are in contravention of section 33 of the " Civil
Service Act, 1917," as follows :— «
" 33. In the absence of special authority of the Legislative Assembly, no member of the Civil
Service shall receive any remuneration from the funds of the Province in addition to the regular
salary of the position which he holds as provided in the annual estimates of the Province."
Kindly let me have an early reply.
Yours truly,
A. N. Mouat,
Comptroller-General.
Government Agent's Office,
Kamloops, B.C., December 12th, 1918.
The Comptroller-General, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—Replying to your letter of the 10th inst. with reference to my Voucher No. 1554 for
$15 in favour of Z. Slavin, I have to state that this is the same Miss Slavin who is permanently
employed In my office as stenographer. I note that this payment would appear to be in contravention of section 33 of the " Civil Service Act, 1917," and for your information I beg to state
that Mr. Philip, the District Public Works Engineer, approached me with reference to obtaining
the services of Miss Slavin, as he was unable to get the work done by an outside stenographer
for the amount of $15 authorized to be paid by his Department for this work. Further, Mr.
Philip informs me a considerable amount of the work is more or less of a confidential nature,
and it was therefore_ advisable, if possible, to have it done by some one in the Service. I informed
him that I had no objection to Miss Slavin doing the work, provided it did not interfere with her
regular duties and hours of work in my office, which it has not, as the work has been done after
regular hours and on Saturday afternoons.
I would point out that, although the work has apparently been done in contravention of the
Act, it has effected a considerable saving and has been much more satisfactory to Mr. Philip.
I have, etc.,
E. Fisher,
Government Agent. F 6 Comptroller-General's Report. 1920
December 19th, 1918.
The Government Agent, Kamloops, B.C.
Oub File No. 17.
Dear Sir,—I have received your letter of the 12th instant, advising that the Miss Z. Slavin
whose name appears as a creditor on your Voucher No. 1554 for services as stenographer for
one month in the office of the District Engineer, Kamloops, is the same Miss Z. Slavin who is
permanently employed in your office as stenographer. "
The explanation offered that the work was done outside regular office hours would be quite
acceptable if it were not for the provisions of section 33 of the " Civil Service Act, 1917," the
terms of which preclude me from passing the voucher for lack of the necessary legislative
authority.
Should you desire to appeal from this decision, I would refer you to section 24 of the " Audit
Act, 1917," for the procedure.
Yours truly,
A. N. Mouat,
Comptroller-General.
Treasury Department,
m Victoria, B.C., January 28th, 1920.
The Comptroller-General, Buildings.
Re Kamloops Agency, Vouchers 1259, 1554, 1786, $45, Treasury Board, Miss Slavin.
Sir,—Referring to your correspondence with the Government Agent at Kamloops in December,
1918, in which you refused to certify to the above vouchers as the payment of same by the
Government Agent was in contravention of section 33 of the " Civil Service Act, 1917," I beg
to state that an appeal of the Government Agent against your decision has been made to the
Treasury Board, and I am directed to inform you that at a meeting of the-Treasury Board
held in Victoria on the 2Gth instant it was resolved that the above Vouchers Nos. 1259, 1554,
and 1786, each for $15 in favour of Z. Slavin, Kamloops (total $45), be paid and charged to
Public Works, " Kamloops District," and that the sum of $45 be reimbursed to the Government
Agent at Kamloops.
I have, etc.,
W. J. Goepel,
Secretary, Treasury Board.
RE RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OF CURRENCY IN MAIL.
Education Office,
Victoria, B.C., October 9th, 1919.
A. N. Mouat, Esq.,
Comptroller-General, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I beg to enclose herewith letter from the Public Works Engineer, with voucher for $5
attached, and to ask your advice as to whether this Department is responsible for the payment
of the $5, which it is alleged went astray in the mail when it was returned to Mr. Morris by the
Public Works Department.
Kindly return the enclosed letter and voucher when they have served their purpose.
I have, etc.,
Alexander Robinson,
Superintendent of Education. 10 Geo. 5 Comptroller-General's Report. F 7
October 14th, 1919.
The Superintendent of Education, Parliament Buildings.
Dear Sir,—With reference to your letter of 9th instant, enclosing voucher for $5 in favour
of R. O. Morris* together with letter from the Public Works Department requesting you to pay
same: The voucher will not be approved by this office, and I would suggest, therefore, that it
be returned to the Public Works Department with an intimation that the party who enclosed
a $5 bill in a letter to the payee without registration must be held responsible for the loss.
Yours truly,
A. N. Mouat,
Comptroller-General.
Department of Public Works,
Victoria, B.C., October 20th, 1919.
The Comptroller-General, Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sidney School.
Sir,—With reference to your letter of the 14th instant to the Superintendent of Education,
declining to pass a voucher for $5 in payment of a deposit made by R. O. Morris that has been
lost in the mail, the letter not being registered, would you care to express an opinion as to who
the responsible party would be? The Department accepts the full responsibility in the matter,
and the loss being connected with a school building we vouchered through the Education
Department.
Yours obediently,
J. E. Griffith,
Deputy Minister of Public Works.
October 21st, 1919.
The Deputy Minister of Public Works, Parliament Buildings.
Your File No. 2081, Ocn File No. 57-3, Sidney School.
Dear Sir,—With reference to your letter of the 20th instant, in which you desire me to
express an opinion as to the party responsible for the loss of an amount of $5 stated to have
been sent in an unregistered letter to R. O. Morris: The decision of placing the responsibility
for this matter rests entirely with the department concerned.
Yours truly,
A. N. Mouat,
Comptroller-General.
December 11th, 1919.
The Deputy Minister of Public Works, Parliament Buildings.
Dear Sir,—With reference to the enclosed vouchers in favour of R. O. Morris, $5; Thos.
Carson, $10; and Tully Bros., $10, stated to be refunds of deposits on plans of various schools,
with a notation on each voucher that currency was mailed in an unregistered letter and failed
to reach the addressee: The voucher in favour of R. O. Morris was originally sent to this office
for payment some time ago and refused, and subsequently an attempt was made to have the
same paid through the Education Office, but, the matter being referred to this office before
payment, the voucher was again returned to your office, with an intimation that the party
responsible for enclosing currency in an unregistered letter must be held responsible for the loss,
and that such voucher would not be .approved as a charge against a legislative appropriation.
Apparently that voucher, together with the two others referred to, has again been presented
for payment in accordance with your memorandum to Mr. Hood of the ISth ultimo. The vouchers
in question cannot be approved for payment, and I would again suggest that the party responsible
make good the loss.
Yours truly,
A. N. Mouat,
Comptroller-General. F 8

Re Three Vouchers—Refund of Deposits on Plans of Schools, $25, Public Works
Department.
Sir,—The Deputy Minister of Public Works has appealed to the Treasury Board against
your refusal of the 14th October, 1919, to approve a voucher for $5 on the grounds that the party
who enclosed a $5 bill in a letter to R. O. Morris without registration must be held responsible
for the loss. I understand that the other two vouchers, amounting to $20, were not presented
to you for payment, but were issued under similar conditions.
I am directed to inform you that at a meeting of the Treasury Board held in Victoria on
Monday, the 26th instant, it was resolved that the said vouchers, amounting to $25, be paid and
charged to Vote No. 231.    I enclose vouchers (3).
I have, etc.,
