Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (VicePresident of the Executive Council) . - The time limit mentioned has reference only to minor offences, which are usually settled by the head of a Department, who is expected to be in close touch with the officer concerned. For serious offences, of course, there will foe an extension of time for the preparation of evidence on appeal. This is in the interests of the Service, because obviously an officer stationed in the back country of

Queensland or Western Australia should have ample time within which to lodge an appeal against any decision, but if he replies by telegram, admitting the offence, the head of the Department will deal with the offence without delay.
