The CHAIRMAN (Mr Adermann (FISHER, QUEENSLAND)

Mr ROBERTON - I respect your suggestion, Mr. Chairman. I merely wanted to make that point, since the matter was raised by the honorable member for Bendigo when he proposed the amendment. I conclude by saying that the amendment is unacceptable to the Government for nine very good and sufficient reasons: The Australian trade union movement will have on the Wool Research Committee nine representatives of the workers engaged in the wool industry. No reasonable Opposition would want anybody to be more heavily weighted than that.


Mr Duthie - I wish to move a further amendment, Mr. Chairman.
