Mr O'MALLEY (Tasmania) - I am amazed that the honorable member for Parramatta should take exception to an officer who is to receive £600 a year having a clerk in receipt of an annual salary of £325 to do the work for him. Officers in receipt of more than £600 a year usually have a subordinate to do their work. They are merely engaged to do the " bossing."

Question - That the figures proposed to be omitted stand part of the question - put. The committe divided.

Ayes ... ... ... 23
