Mr FENTON - The answers to the honorable members questions are as follow : -

1.   In selecting men for employment, preference is accorded to returned soldiers, and there is no intention so far as I am aware of disturbing the existing arrangements.

2.   There was no question of reduction in grade, but, instead of being employed under exemption, the men were for a time employed under the temporary employment provisions of the Public Service Act. This was done to permit of ready review, having regard to any excess permanent officers who had to be placed.

3.   No.

4.   See answer to No. 1.
