Mr EDWARDS (Berowra) - The amendment I propose to move is similar in import to the previous proposal I mentioned. I referred to the provision in clause 9 that the power of the Chairman in regard to certain responsibilities can be exercised only after consultation with the Commissioners. In clause 18, which we are now considering, powers again are conferred on the Chairman and it begins with the words 'Subject to this section'. I move:

In Sub-Clause (1) omit the words 'Subject to this section', substitute the following words:

Subject to sub-section 9 (3) and to this section'.

The clause would then read:

Subject to sub-section 9 (3) and to this section, the Chairman shall convene such meetings of the Commission as he thinks necessary ....

The purpose of making this subject to clause 9 (3) is that in the exercise of these powers the Chairman shall consult with the Commissioners.

Suggest corrections
