Mr BREEN - The clause provides that the board shall consist of three members to represent the lamb producers of Australia, and one member to represent the mutton producers. This might appear all very well on paper, but it is inconceivable that, a person could be a lamb producer and not a mutton producer, and vice versa.

Mr Scully - There are many persons in western New South Wales and Queensland who produce only mutton.

Mr BREEN - One can hardly imagine a lamb producer who ' does not sometimes sell ewes. In the same way, practically every mutton producer would sometimes have lambs to sell. Therefore, the provision in the bill is superfluous. The draftsman has tried . to particularize too much, and I suggest that the clause be redrawn.
