Mr GABB (Angas) .- I move-

That the word " seven", proposed new section 3 ( 1) , be omitted with a view to insert in lieu thereof the word " five ".

Surely honorable members are satisfied that five members are ample ! It has been shown that this committee has very few inquiries to make apart from those in connexion with automatic telephone exchanges.Two ex-Ministers have informed us that references to the committee are usually made when the work is practically finished. If the committee is to be merely a figurehead, it should not foe necessary to have on it more than five members.
