Mr CHARLTON (Hunter) .- I move -

That, in sub-clause 5,all the words after the word " of," second occurring, be omitted, with a view to inserting in lieu thereof the words " organizations of employees respectively shall be recommended for appointment in the prescribed manner by the respective employers and organizations of employees."

The object of the amendment is to state clearly how the members of the Commonwealth Council shall be recommended.No one knows what " the prescribed manner " may be. We desire that both parties' shall make their recommendations, and that the Executive shall prescribe regulations for their appointment.

Mr Hughes - That is quite right.

Mr Maxwell - To be consistent, you should use the words " recognised organizations."

Amendment amended accordingly, and agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 6 -

Sittings of the Commonwealth Council shall be convened by the chairman whenever he thinks fit, or at the request of the Minister, or of the prescribed number of members.
