Mr FENTON (Maribyrnong) .- The Minister's contention appears to me to be very weak, because I take it that the Director will be appointed at a fixed salary of,say, £1,000, for a term of five years. If Parliament stepped in and reduced the salary to £750 a year, the Director would have his remedy against the Government for breach of contract, because if he were a sensible man he would have his contract in black and white before he accepted the appointment. I am against the Bill absolutely, but I shall vote for the amendment in order to secure parliamentary control.
