Report of Select Committee on Finances
Report of Select Committee on Finances.
Mr. Dodds said: I have the honour to bring up the report of the select committee appointed to deal with the finances—the ex- page 126 penses incurred in connection with the sittings of the Council—and I beg to move that it be read.
The report was read by the Clerk as follows:—
The select committee appointed on the 4th February, to ascertain and certify to the necessary expenditure in connection with the business of this Council during the session, have the honour to report that they have examined and certified such accounts for necessary expenses, as were ready to be laid before them. There are other items of expenditure, such as printing and binding, which cannot be ascertained at present. These the committee propose shall be dealt with by the chairman of the committee. The committee recommend that remuneration be granted to the officers and other attendants who have been employed in the service of the Council during the session, according to the scale herewith submitted.
The desirability of providing a Hansard was considered, and the committee being informed that arrangements have already been made in Hobart for such purpose, recommend that such arrangements be confirmed.
J. S. Dodds, Chairman. Federal Council Chambers,
5th February, 1886.
