Mr GREGORY (Swan) . - I believe that there should be at least six members on the Public Accounts Committee, with a chairman, appointed by Parliament - which really means the Government - having a deliberative and casting vote. However, I understand that that is not acceptable to the Government. As I consider that five is too small a number, that it would make the committee unworkable if one or two members became ill, and that a very small committee can not do as good work as a larger one, I shall vote for the clause as it stands.
