Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) . - I moveThat the word' " shall," line 1, be left out with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words "may in his discretion".

Much has been said and argued regarding how inquiries are to be initiated, conducted, and reported upon. This subclause, if amended as I desire, will provide .for much more elastic working. It will not be obligatory for the Minister to refer to the Board all the many minor matters coming within his purview.
