The immediate reason for the cessation of the test inspections at the end of 1931 was that the services of the inspectors temporarily engaged for the purpose were dispensed with as part of the economies affected in consquence of the financial crisis at that time. On the matter being subsequently reviewed it was decided that a permanent addition should be made to the staff of inspectors, and I am satisfied that the present staff, conducting as it does test inspections in addition to the investigation of specific complaints, is adequate to ensure the proper administration of the Act.
