Mr BANDIDT (Wide Bay) .- There is only one issue before the committee and it is this: If a salary of £8,000 was fair in 1955 for the Chief Justice of the High Court, is a salary of £10,000 fair to-day? If a salary of £6,500 was fair in 1955 for the puisne judges of the High Court is it fair to give them another £2,000 to-day? Any sensible member of this

House, disregarding all sorts of disputes and arguments that do not matter must agree that, as a matter of relativity, it is fair to give these judges £2,000 more per annum to-day than they received five years ago.
