Senator PAYNE (Tasmania) . -I desire to say a word or two on the amendment moved by me yesterday. I am very , pleased that the Minister in charge of the Bill (Senator Russell) has been able to elicit the information which he has given to the Senate to-day. No one is more gratified than I to hear that the lads employed as telegraph messengers in the Postal Department can be entirely absorbed in the Public Service. In view of the Minister's statement I have no option but to withdraw my amendment - with the permission of the

Senate. My object in moving it was to protect lads who might otherwise be forced out of the Service by failing to pass the prescribed examination.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.
