Senator GIBSON (Victoria) .- I move -

That after the word " commissioners " the words "at least" be inserted.

As the clause stands, the number of women who may be appointed to the commission is limited to one. My amendment will permit of the appointment of more than one ; and I move it because of the fact that nearly all avenues of activity in the community are now open to women.

Amendment agreed to.
