Mr WEST (East Sydney) (11:59 AM) . - The Government should be careful about every appointment it makes. The appointment of Judge Drake-Brockman was neither more or less than a political one. Judge Drake-Brockman has a brother, and both of them were pestering the Government for a long time for appointments. One was appointed as a judge in New Guinea, and he made it so disagreeable there that he had to be sent for, and. it cost the Government £2,000 to get rid of him.

At 12 noon -

The CHAIRMAN (Mr Bayley - The time for discussing the votes has expired.
