Senator STEWART (Queensland) . - I notice that the Public Service Commissioner and the Minister of any Department affected by a claim are to be entitled to be represented before the Court. If honorable senators will turn to clause 12 they will find that it provides -

No organisation or person shall in any proceeding under this Act be represented by counsel or solicitor.

So far as I can see, there is nothing in the Bill which will prohibit the Public Service Commissioner or the Minister of a Department affected by a claim being represented by counsel or solicitor.
