Mr GLYNN (South Australia) - Before the honorable member moves in the direction of reducing the item, I desire to ask the Prime Minister if he will see that the increased salary proposed is paid to the senior messenger. I understand that the officer who would receive this salary as President's messenger is not the senior messenger on the Senate side, but is only third in rank, and that two other officers have been passed over. Perhaps it will be as well to amend the item. I therefore move -

That the item " President's messenger, £204," be amended by the addition, after the word "messenger," of the words "being the senior messenger."
