Mr ABBOTT (New England) (12:25 PM) . - I move -

That in proposed new section twelve, after sub-section (2.), the following new sub-section be inserted: - " (2a.) A majority of the members of each such committee shall be producers and each member shall be appointed from persons nominated by a State organization of lamb, mutton, beef or pig producers affiliated with a body specified in sub-section (4.) of section five of this Act."

My object is to bring the State meat advisory committees into line with the Australian Meat Board, in regard . to representation on them, by. providing that the members to be nominated by each producer organization shall be nominated by bodies' affiliated with the federal organization. I propose that nomination shall be taken out of the hands of. the Minister. I hope that the honorable gentleman will accept the amendment.
