Order! I do not want the Committee to embark now on a discussion relating to the amendment foreshadowed by the honorable member for Evans (Dr. Mackay). He was allowed to intimate its terms so that the Committee would have information about what he had in mind. But I do not want the Committee at this juncture to debate the subject matter of the proposal.

Mr HAWORTH - I appreciate that point, Mr. Chairman, and I shall not debate the matter. However, the honorable member for Evans has discussed it with me outside the chamber and I know what he is thinking. I believe that the key word is the expression " publicly " contained in the amendment that we are now considering. I consider that the honorable member for Mackellars proposed amendment, by the use of this word, will go too far. I do not believe that a member of the Tribunal should have to make public disclosure of his pecuniary interests. It will be sufficient if disclosure is made to the President. I conclude by stating that I shall support the amendment foreshadowed by the honorable member for Evans.
