Mr BATCHELOR - The honorable gentleman insinuated that if South Australia was not prepared to pay the men, he had no doubt that New South Wales, out of her large-minded generosity, would do so. No objection has been made by South Australia to the payment of the men if it can be shown that it is desirable that they should stay there. The objection has been to what is believed to be an unnecessary expenditure. If the Minister would not make these somewhat' taunting suggestions he would do something to allay the irritation which has been caused by the action taken so far.

Sir WilliamLyne (In explanation). - The honorable member for South Australia, Mr. Batchelor, has accused me of using taunting expressions. There was nothing further from my mind than that. What I said was that if an objection were taken by South Australia to the payment of these instructors, and as the honorable and learned member, Mr. Glynn, held they really belonged tp New South Wales, the latter State might not object to pay them for the time being.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
