Mr KILLEN (Moreton) (12:14 PM) .I move -

In sub-clause (1.), omit "may", insert "shall".

I have gone through the motions of moving my amendment because it seems that I cannot prompt any pragmatic argument on the cases that I put. However, I will persist even to the end. As the clause stands you could have an individual appearing before the Tribunal and giving hearsay on hearsay, telling the most outrageous lies, but if this evidence is received with sufficient credibility, the Tribunal could act on it and put in jeopardy an entire industry and all the people associated with the industry. I do not think it is imposing a great burden on the Tribunal to require that it shall - not may - take evidence on oath or by way of affirmation.
