Mr CHARLTON (Hunter) . - This clause refers to officers retiring voluntarily, and I should like to know just what its effect will he. "Will an officer -who has been transferred to the Service of a State, should he retire voluntarily, have the same rights under the Bill as if ho had retired from a Commonwealth Department? The Treasurer has said that the State Governments will take over quite a number of these officers of the Taxation Department, and some of them for sufficient reason might, after their transfer to a State Department, wish to retire. If 'they retire while in the Service of the Commonwealth they will be entitled to compensation, but I am very much afraid that no provision is made for officers who transfer to a State Department and then voluntarily retire.
