Mr CROUCH (Corio) - To me it seems strange that the Government Printer, who already receives the large salary of £800 per annum, should be given a gratuity of £150.

Mr.F. E. McLean.- £500 is to be given in gratuities to other officers as well.

Mr CROUCH - But I do not think that the book-binders, machinists, and others will get any of the money.

Sir George Turner - We pay the Victorian Government for the actual work done.

Mr CROUCH - Am I to understand that the Government Printer does not use any of the State time in performing services for the Commonwealth ?

Sir George Turner - Of course, he does.

Mr CROUCH - Then we should pay the State, and not the. officer himself, for that work.
