ECONOMY OR INCREASED TAXATION [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 23 January 1917
ECONOMY OR INCREASED TAXATION Under the heading "Fooling tAhe Taxpayers," she Perth "Daily News" writing with reference to the reports of the Public Service Com missioner, says : These official documents bear out the fooling, and expose the difficulty of effecting economy in any shape or form. In the first. place it becomes evident that Ministers are largely, if not wholly, controlled by their permanent staffs. Each head natu rally desires to magnify his own office, and, as he has the ear of his Minister, he fills it in a manner to suit his own purposes. The Min ister in turn, attends Cabinet, and stands by his department. Other Ministers do not care to interfere with their colleague's control of his department, and in this way all sorts of scandalous and wasteful adminis tration occur. The annual expendi ture creeps up, and it is no one's particular business to check it. The drafting departments are an ex ample. Five or six branches of the service have their staffs of drafts men.
