Mr CALWELL (Melbourne) (Leader of the Oppostiion) . - by leave -I move -

In proposed section 45, sub-section (3.), omit " in the Gazette or otherwise ", insert " in the Gazette and in such other manner as the Board considers advisable ".

I understand that the Government will not accept this amendment, and I shall not press it. The feeling did exist among some members of the Opposition that a custom is growing up of not advertising all vacancies in the " Gazette ". It is felt that, as far as possible, the " Gazette " should be used to advertise every vacancy that occurs so that any person who has a right to know that such a vacancy exists shall have the opportunity of applying if he believes that he has the qualifications necessary to fill the office. Perhaps the Prime Minister will have a look at the matter.
