Mr CASEY (Corio) (Treasurer) . - in reply - I have not heard any complaints from Commonwealth public servants with reference to the arrangement to make deductions from their salaries ; on the . contrary, I have been advised that the arrangement is regarded as a convenient one. At the present time we no authority to continue making these deductions. I suggest, therefore, that the honorable member for Wakefield (Mr. Hawker) should withdraw his objection to the measure because we have to get some authority to continue what we have been doing. I have no reason to believe that Commonwealth public servants are not in agreement with this procedure. If the honorable gentleman will withdraw his objection I shall undertake to have the matter investigated and shall inform Parliament if any injustice is being done.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a. second time.

In committee:

Clause 1 agreed to.

Clause 2 (Deduction of tax from salaries of officers).
