Sir LANGDON BONYTHON (Barker) . - I was very pleased to hear the tribute paid by the honorable member for Parramatta to Sir Charles Todd. It was most richly deserved, and as Sir Charles has retired from the Commonwealth service. I think one may say very fairly that there never was in Australia a more efficient public officer. His scientific attainments are recognised throughout the world. I intend to support the amendment moved by the honorable member for North Sydney, because the two Departments in South Australia are at present practically conducted as one, and whilst I am sure that their division would have the effect of increasing the expenditure, I am by no means satisfied that itwould in any way add to efficiency.
