Senator GIVENS (Queensland) - Last year I moved a request in order to protest against the objectionable manner in which the salary for the Usher of the Black Rod was set down. He was set down for a salary of £550 as " Usher of the Black Rod, Clerk of Select Committees, and Secretary of the Joint House Committee," and a salary of ,£50 as " Controller of the Refreshment Rooms." I desire to know whether the item of £550 under the head of " The Senate ' ' includes the whole of this officer's remuneration.
