Senator COHEN (Victoria) .- I do not want to repeat what I said in the debate on the second reading, but I have listened to the explanation of the Minister for Civil Aviation (Senator Henty) and would suggest that we should not be entirely satisfied with it. The Minister made a comparison between the salaries of the heads of parliamentary departments and officers in the First Division of the Public Service who are in receipt of comparable salaries. On that basis, he suggested that the adjustments in salaries were not unfavorable to the parliamentary heads. I put it to the Minister that these parliamentary officers are all First Division officers and I would suggest that the Cabinet take another look at the question during the parliamentary recess and before the next sessional period.
