Senator ST LEDGER (Queensland) . - It must be evident that if it is intended to pay an extra officer£600 a year, the Government anticipate that he will be pretty busy. Why do they anticipate that? The proposed salary rising from , £600 to£850 is a very large one. It should only be commensurate with the duties - more or less arduous and difficult - which the officer is going to perform. The very reference in this clause to an increase of the salary to£850 indicates that the Ministry anticipate that there will be a great deal of trouble arising out of the provisions of this measure. Let them take the consequences.
