Mr JOHNSON (LANG, NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Minister of Home Affairs, upon notice -

1.   Is it a fact that out of the amount of £1,000 set apart in the Appropriation Act 1905-6 for increments to officers of the Clerical Division, Postmaster-General's Department, New

South Wales, in receipt of £ibo per annum and upwards, not one officer in receipt of less than ^185 per annum participated?

2.   Is it not a fact that there are a considerable number of officers in receipt of salaries of ^'160 and less than ^'185?

3.   Were not some of the officers referred to in question No. 2 recommended to the Public Service Commissioner for promotion to ^185?

4.   As it appears to have been the wish of Parliament that officers in receipt of j£i6o and under ^185 per annum should participate, in common with their more highly paid colleagues, will the Minister take steps to authorize payment of the increases recommended from the Treasurer's Advance Account - it being understood that the amount of £ 1,000 lias been exhausted - in order that those officers recommended will not lose twelve months seniority and salary?
