Geodetic survey : reply to queries of Mr Carpenter for a return of (1.) The number of acres surveyed each year ending 31st December 1856 to 1859 inclusive, the total cost of the field and office branch of the Survey Department during each of those years including the trigonometrical and geodetic surveys (2.) The number of acres surveyed between the 1st January and 1st July of the present year, the total expenditure of the Survey Department during that period (3.) The number of miles of geodetic lines correctly marked and checked up to the 1st July last, the total number of miles of geodetic lines it will be necessary to mark in order to complete the geodetic survey, also the cost of the geodetic survey up to the 1st of July last (4.) Has the geodetic system been departed from, if so for what reason, whether contract surveys are not being let independent of and unconnected with the geodetic survey, and if it was not originally intended that the geodetic survey was to precede and form the basis of the contract system
