    Notes 
    • Speaking at the annual meeting of the Penang Chamber of Commerce, Mr. A.E. T. Murray said if the Government wished to get the best out of the place, and if the place was to be run in a proper manner and give security, Government must run their services properly. He gave two cases that had recently come to his notice of Government servants being underpaid. One was the Harbour Master, a man of over 50 years and considerable experience, who was sent to Penang on just under $400 a month. He called that scandalous. A certain Police Inspector in Relau with a good number of years' experience and who had been to the war was drawing under $200 a month.Another scandalous case. There were many others. These matters were very much the concern of the public, for the public had a right to expect the best of service from Government servants, and this was not being brought about by present Government methods.
