Senator RAE (Tasmania) - It occurs to me that there is perhaps one unfortunate aspect of the procedure which has been adopted and that is that the remarks that I wish to make are of necessity fairly lengthy to explain the various aspects of amendment No. 5 and will interrupt Senator James McClelland. Therefore I shall formally move the amendment and enable Senator James McClelland to make the reply which he was in the process of making and then I will join in the debate once it has been opened up. I move:

After clause 4, insert the following new clauses: 4a. The members of the Commission shall be appointed as follows:

(a)   the Chairman and live other members upon the recommendation of the Minister and of whom two shall be members of teacher organizations selected by the Minister from a panel of not less than five persons' names submitted by the Australian Teachers' Federation and one shall be a person involved in research in relation to education;

(b)   six other members upon the recommendation of the Australian Education Council and of whom two shall be members of parent organizations selected by the Australian Education Council from a panel of not less than five persons' names submitted by the Australian Council of State School Organizations and one shall be a person involved in special education of handicapped children or children with special learning difficulities; and

(c)   three other members of whom one shall be appointed upon the recommendation of the Education Executive of the Episcopal Conference of Australia, one shall be upon the recommendation of the National Council of Independent Schools and one shall be upon the recommendation of the Australian Parents ' Council. 4B. A member shall not be responsible to the body or organization which recommended the member or submitted the member's name in a panel of names. '.
