Mr WATSON - The answer to the right honorable member's question is as follows : -

In cases where it has been found that there are more officers than are necessary for the efficient working of the Department, it is the intention of the Commissioner to transfer such officers to other positions as soon as possible, and in the meantime to utilize their services to relieve branches where the work is congested, and to allow of annual leave being granted to officers.

There is no intention to retrench- officers.
