Mr PAGE (Maranoa) .- We should have a statement from the Minister as to the position of the Acting Secretary for Defence. The Secretary is away acting as Administrator of the Islands in the Pacific. The Assistant Secretary is doing his work for £624 a year, and that work at the present stage is superhuman. The Secretary draws £900 a year. Is it the intention of the Government to give the Assistant Secretary a bonus for the extra duties? A man should be paid according to the work he does.
