Sir HENRY DRAYTON:
I am not
going to say anything as to any personal knowledge I have as to the competency of the staff of the Auditor General. We are relying upon the Auditor General. In the main there have been but very few changes, but so far as the new appointments are concerned, the Government have received no complaint from the Auditor General as to their efficiency. But the publishing of the fourth volume of the Auditor General's report does not depend so much on the size of the staff, as upon whether the necessary information has come to hand. The Auditor General says Jae has not got all the information yet, and that he cannot get it before the end of the month.
