Senator BAKHAP (TASMANIA) asked the Minister of Defence, upon notice -

Are any officers or men of the Expeditionary Forces, who hold positions in the Commonwealth Bank, receiving while on active service the salaries attached to their positions, in addition to their military pay?

Senator PEARCE - I have to inform the honorable senator that a communication was sent to the Governor 'of the Bank, but that no reply has yet been received. I have communicated again with the Governor, asking him to expedite the answer. I will endeavour to obtain the information for to-morrow.

Senator Bakhap - I ask the Minister to ascertain whether, even if the practice is terminated, it has been observed or not?

Senator Guthrie - It has taken place in other Departments than the Bank.
