Senator VARDON (South Australia) . - I understood the Minister (Senator Russell) to intimate that the salaries of the members of the Board would be equal.

Senator Russell -i said that no decision had been arrived at.

Senator VARDON - I may have misunderstood the Minister's remarks and applied them to salaries rather than to status. I anticipate that the Chairman will have to take a leading position. It is inevitablethat one member should do so.

Senator Russell - It will be for the Government to decide upon the salaries, but I, naturally, assume that the chairman will be paid more than his colleagues.

Senator VARDON - Will the matter be left to the Government?

Senator Russell - Parliament . will decide, but the specific reference to salaries mustbe inserted in another place.
