Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Some time ago the Treasurer said that he had given orders for the payment of all increments voted to officers during this month.

Sir George Turner -With the June salaries.

Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The officers have not yet received any word regarding these increments, and I should like to know whether , it is not time that they were notified regarding them.

SirGEORGE TURNER.- About the middle of May I intimated that I would provide for the payment of all increments to. officers with the June salaries, this being in accordance with the practice in the States, under which increments are not paid until they are voted by Parliament. When the House bad dealt with the whole of the Estimates I felt perfectly justified in directing the payment of the increments, and instructions have been given to all the departments to hand them over with the J une salaries. Salaries will be paid about the 28th or 29th of this month, because we desire to have ali payments made before the end of the year. I should have thought that the public notification that was given would have been sufficient. It would have been impossible to send round and tell all the officers individually.
