Senator SENIOR (South Australia) . - A member of the Board who may have delegated powermay go to. Western Australia and classify the officers in such a way that they may appeal against his findings.

Senator Russell - If he does, the officers will have the right to appeal to the full. Board against his decision.

Senator SENIOR - I think it would be better to provide that if any member of the Board deals with the matter of classification his decision shall not be deemed to be the decision of the Board until it is confirmed by the whole Board. As the clause stands, it merely gives the chief officer of a Department the power to request that the full Board shall take a matter under its cognisance, whereas the decision of the member of the Board may really suit that officer and not those under him.
