Senator STEWART (Queensland) . - I would direct the attention of honorable senators to paragraph 5, which says -

The committee may act by a majority of their members present at a meeting, but shall not act unless a majority of the committee are present.

Now, if a committee consists of two persons, where will the majority come in? Clearly the committee could not act unless all its members were present.

Suggest corrections
