Mr FENTON (Maribyrnong) (5:52 AM) . - The clause provides for six months' pay; an amendment has been proposed from this side that ib should be increased to twelve months' pay, and I ask the Treasurer now whether he cannob see his way to split the difference and make provision for nine months' pay?

Dr Earle Page - No. The matter has been gone into very carefully.

Mr FENTON - I am very much inclined to move an amendment to provide for nine months' pay; but there appears to be no hope of moving the Government or its supporters.
