I would ask for information if the Prime Minister has it, concerning the change or proposed change in the deputy head. I see it stated in the newspapers that the deputy has resigned or intends to resign. He is a man in the prime of life, and, I have understood, a very efficient man. What are the reasons for giving up such a ' good sit ? '
Mr. Smart has given up the service. There is no reason, so far as I now know, except that he thinks that he can better his circumstances by going into business himself. He has not been superannuated so far as I know.
