§ 354. “Subject to the Control of the Executive Government of the Commonwealth.”

Every department, on being transferred to the Commonwealth, becomes at once a department of the public service of the Commonwealth, and subject to the provisions of Chap. III. of the Constitution. The appointment and removal of its officers is thenceforth vested in the Governor-General in Council, until other provision is made (sec. 67), and its administration is vested in the Executive Government (secs. 61–64).
