Mr McDONALD (Kennedy) - I think we are entitled to some explanation in regard to this division. It appears to me that the whole of this department is run upon very extravagant lines. We have a secretary receiving £750 per annum, a chief clerk receiving £600, a chief accountant receiving £550 per annum, a senior clerk (also secretary to Minister) receiving £450 per annum, and a clerk and shorthand writer receiving £250 per annum. In my opinion the number of these officers could be reduced. I think that the senior clerk and secretary to the Minister is a new appointment.
