Sir JOHN FORREST (Swan) (Treasurer) . - Mr. Whitton has reported on this clause also, although, so far as I recollect, it was not mentioned as one which it was desired to recommit.

Mr DUGALD THOMSON (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - It was discussed in connexion with clause 11.

Sir JOHN FORREST - Mr. Whittonwrites -

This provision, section 10, is made on my recommendation. A similar provision was made in the last New South Wales Act. It is impossible to fulfil the duty at present imposed. There are many accounts of a relatively unimportant nature, kept by officers who will be included under the wide interpretation of " Accounting Officer," and to visit some of these, even once a year, would cost more than the whole of the money at stake.
