Proposed vote, £361,020.

Mr. GREGORY(Swan [10.55].- I am somewhat disturbed regarding the increased cost of carrying on the Development and Migration Commission. It is a question whether it is not becoming too extravagant in its methods. I daresay that the reports it has presented are indicative of its having done good work: but at the same time I am led to believe that an expensive department is being built up. I urge upon the Prime Minister the need for exercising the greatest care, so that its expenditure may be restricted ; otherwise, very drastic steps may have to be taken in the future
