Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - In moving the amendment, as I did, on the spur of the moment, I certainly had no desire that the appointment of these officers should be taken out of the hands of our properly constituted authority, namely, the Public Service Commissioner. If the effect of the amendment be as suggested, although I do not think it is, I shall certainly join in asking, as I believe the Minister himself would ask, for an opportunity of remodelling it. But if he, in his reply, can give an assurance that the danger indicated by Senator Givens is an imaginary one, then it will give satisfaction to every one in the Chamber.
