Senator O'KEEFE (Tasmania) . - There is one item about which I would like to get a little information, and my curiosity is excusable, I think. I find an item of £6,700, under the head of High Commissioner's Office, for, I take it, the term covered by the Bill. Of the total sum £2,200 is set down as salaries. That, I take it, would be for the High Commissioner and his staff. That item is followed by the item " Contingencies, £4,500." The discrepancy is remarkable.
