Mr HUGHES - On the 13th May the honorable member for Melbourne Ports (Mr. Mathews) asked whether the Government intended to pay Commonwealth employees for the holidays they received during the visit 'of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. I then intimated that an announcement would shortly be made. I now desire to inform the House that, in order to have uniformity in this matter, it has been decided that where public holidays are granted to Commonwealth employees in connexion with the visit of His Royal Highness, such employees are to be paid for one public holiday.
