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

That the words in sub-clause 2 " as regards payment in addition to salary " be left out.

The desire is to give the Board wider discretion. An officer may be temporarily transferred to a locality, or under conditions, in regard to which the subject of living allowance is involved. If the cost of living were to fall there should be provision to adjust the allowance. Hence the proposed deletion of the reference to "payment in addition to salary."

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 44 -

(1)   Any officer of the Public, Railway, or other Service of a State employed in a permanent capacity, whether appointed thereto before or after the commencement of this Act, may be appointed or transferred by the Board without examination, and, if the Board thinks fit, without probation, to a position in the corresponding division in the Commonwealth Service.
