Senator DALY - The Minister for Defence has supplied the following answers to the honorable senator's questions : -

1.   Yes.

2.   He is paid quarterly at the rate of £250 per annum.

3.   He is paid quarterly at an annual rate in the same manner as all other militia formation commanders, subject to a certificate by the Chief of the GeneralStaff that the duties of the appointment have been efficiently performed for the period claimed. These duties comprise the command, recruiting, training and administration of the 3rd Division. The question of an hourly, daily or weekly rate, therefore, does not arise. 4 and 5. I would refer the honorable senator to section 44 of the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act.
