Mr CHARLTON (Hunter) .- I desire to place on record the fact that whilst I approve of the machinery that is to be set up under, this measure I believe it will be found later on that there is some duplication. I do not think there is any necessity for these advisory councils. The Tribunals which are provided for later on will be ample, and by providing only for their creation we should lead to economy in the administration of the measure.I move -

That after the word " six " in sub-clause 2, the words " nor more than eight " be inserted.

My desire is to limit the number of members to be appointed to the Commonwealth Council, and my amendment, if carried, would allow of not more than four representatives of each side, in addition to the chairman.

Mr Hughes - I will accept that amendment.

Amendment agreed to.
