Mr KELLY (Wentworth) . - I wish to bring under the notice of the Minister of Home Affairs a matter which I am sure will meet with consideration at his hands. Owing to the legislation recently enacted in New South Wales, the effect of which is to decentralize administration in the Lands Office, and to allocate to that administration land taxation, the central Taxation Department will necessarily be retrenched considerably, so far as the land tax officers are concerned. I wish to ask the Minister whether, in connexion with any vacancies which may occur in the Commonwealth service which such officers are eligible to fill - other things being equal - he will extend a preference to them?
