Senator HARDY (New South Wales) . -When the bill was being drafted was the significance of the word " continuously" fully considered? The continuity of the service of a temporary employee may he broken because of illness. If the clause is left as it stands, he will be precluded from being permanently appointed to the service unless he has had twoyears of unbroken service. It is quite possible that service which has lasted continuously for a period of 22 months may be terminated on account of illness. After a short time the man may secure a fresh appointment and serve for another long period. Is it just that such a man should be deprived of the opportunity to secure permanent employment?
