THE LCTHBRIDQE HERALD Wednesday, January 9, 1974 House secretaries switch jobs OTTAWA (CP) The ap- pointment of one new parlia- mentary secretary and toe re- appointment of 16 others was announced in the Commons Tuesday by Prime Minister Trudeau. They are effective Jan. 1 to Oct. 1 and give Privy Council President Allan MacEachen two parliamentary assistants including newly-appointed Maurice Foster from the On- tario riding of Algoma. He joins John Reid (Kenora- Rainy River) who has held the post since last January. The limited shuffle removes parliamentary secretaries for external affairs and the secre- tary of state. The secretaries can repre- sent cabinet ministers both in- side and outside the Commons and the position often serves as a training ground for newer MPs who might be considered potential cabinet material. It carries a increase in annual salary of plus in expenses. Of the 16 MPs reappomted, only four are switching departments: Herb Breau (Gloucester) moves from in- dustry, trade and commerce to energy, mines and resources; Pierre DeBane leaves the external affairs post vacant to occupy a newly- created position as parlia- mentary secretary to .Con- sumer Affairs Minister Herb Gray; Raynald Guay (Levis) moves from justice to in- dustry, trade and commerce, Gilles Marceau (Lapointe) leaves the secretary of state post vacant for the justice department post OTHERS UNCHANGED Remaining in the same de- partments are: Leopold Cor- riveau (Madawaska- agriculture, William Rompkey (Grand Falls-White The best to you from Palm.

Of the 17 men appointed, six are from Ontario, and seven from Quebec. There is one parliamentary secretary from each of British Columbia, Newfoundland, New Brunswick and Manitoba. The number of parliamen- tary secretaries in the Trudeau government was sharply reduced last January when the government fell into a minority position. Although parliamentary secretaries are assigned to represent their ministers, often taking much of the ver- bal flack when their bosses are away from the Commons, they have no legal authority in the departments. They have no acting responsibility or any of the powers of a cabinet minister. In the Commons, Patrick Nowlan Valley) asked if re- appointment of 16 parliamen- tary secretaries "is an admis- sion that there is no talent to recognize and no one to promote or is it just another flip flop in the prime minister's political Mr. Trudeau, in the last Parliament established the practice of rotating parliamentary secretaries after two years. This is the first shuffle since this Par- liament began a year ago. The prime minister told Mr. Nowlan he was following the practice from the last Parlia- ment, allowing the parlia- mentary secretaries to re- main in office for two years. B.
