Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (VicePresident of the Executive Council) .-I move-

That paragraph (d) be left out.

The reason for omitting this paragraph is that an officer may not retire after receiving a reduced salary, and it would not be equitable to give him compensation in lieu of furlough at the rate of a salary he received years before.

Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) -Bkockman. - Could the Minister not make better provision by saying that the officer must retire within a given period?

Senator RUSSELL - The difficulty is that some of them have nothing, and they want to hang on.
