Dr MACKAY (Evans) .- I am not a lawyer nor am I the son of a lawyer. However, in reading this clause, I do not find myself in anything like the perturbation of mind of the honorable member for Moreton (Mr. Killen), because of paragraph (b) of sub-clause (1.) which states that a review may be made provided - that the determination is of such importance that, in the public interest, it should be reconsidered;

I ask the Attorney-General (Mr. Snedden) whether an error of fact of the kind mentioned by my honorable friend, which bore upon the whole standing of justice as arrived at by the Tribunal, would not in fact be covered by this paragraph and whether this provision does not give a very wide and sufficient ground on which an appeal could be heard on this type of matter.
