Mr GREENE (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Trade and Customs) . - I take it that the salary of the Director, like the salaries of all public servants, will come up for consideration when the Estimates are under review. In this way it will be subject, ultimately, to the approval of this House.

Mr Ryan - If you appoint a Director at a fixed salary for a term, this House will not be able to alter it.

Mr GREENE (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Trade and Customs) - The ordinary procedure of allowing the Executive to make the appointment and fix a salary should apply in this case. This is the invariable practice, with the exception of a few cases in which the salary is definitely laid down in a Bill, such as for the appointment of Judges. The Committee will be well advised not to accept the amendment.
