Senator SCOTT - The Minister for the Interior has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

1.   Yes.

2.   Ye*.

3.   Yes.

4.   The charge and suspension notices under section 55 of the Public Service Act were handed to Mr Nichols at 3.30 p.m. on 6th September 1968. The notice of punishment stating that it had been recommended to the Public Service Board thai Mr Nichols should be dismissed from the Service was dated 1st October 1968. His appeal against the proposed action was considered by the Appeal Board on 11th and 12th December 1968, and the Appeal Board on 12th December 1968 confirmed the recommendation of the Chief Officer that Mr Nichols should be dismissed. Mr Nichols could have submitted his resignation from the Commonwealth Public Service at any time up to the effective date of his dismissal from the Service, viz., 24th January 1969. However, I am advised by the Public Service Board that once the dismissal certificate became effective he could no longer terminate his employment by resignation.

5.   See answer to 4.
