Mr LATHAM (Kooyong) (AttorneyGeneral) (6:40 AM) . - Only one peace officer remains now, and he is attached to the investigation branch in Sydney. The police force at Canberra was recruited mainly from the former peace officers, and the salaries paid under the appropriate item. The only amount that will be spent under the item of peace officers is the salary of the one officer in Sydney, probably about £400.

Mr Scullin - Was £3,700 spent on the peace officers last year?

Mr LATHAM - Yes; but all but one have been transferred to Canberra.
