Senator GIVENS (Queensland) . - The object of this amendment is merely to allow a discretion to a Select Committee. At present the standing order is mandatory, and a Committee have no discretion.

All that it does is to give to a Committee a discretion to pay up to the scale if they so choose. I move -
