Mr HUGHES - Some time ago the honorable member for West Sydney (Mr. Ryan) asked me the following question : -

1.   Is it the intention of the Government to hold an examination this year to enable General Division officers to qualify for the Clerical Division f

2.   If not, why?

I am now in a position to furnish the honorable member with the following reply :- 1 and 2. It is understood the honorable member desires information as to whether General Division officers in Kew South Wales will have an opportunity of qualifying for transfer as clerk. There are twenty qualified General Division officers in that State awaiting transfer as clerk, and in addition 133 returned soldiers, of whom eighty are officers of the General Division, have passed a recent examination. In the circumstances a further examination will not be required this year.
