Mr GREGORY (Dampier) . - When I gave notice of an amendment providing that the Chairman of the Council should be appointed by a Judge of the Arbitration Court and not by the Government - my object being to keep the appointment free from politics - I was under the impression that the Council would have greater powers than it is to have. I find, however, that it is merely to inquire and report to the Government, and, that being so, I think the Chairman should be appointed by the Government. I therefore do not intend to put my amendment before the Committee.
