The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator Wilkinson - Senator Rae,I ask you to keep to the actual amendment.

Senator RAE - I remind the Committee that the amendment seeks to increase the number of other members to 14; that is 15 in all- the Chairman and 14 other members. I am giving the reason why it is necessary to increase the number to that total of 15. The reason why we are moving that the number be increased to a total of 1 5 is that we wish to see the Government kept to its promise on representation.

Senator James McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Where in the Prime Minister's policy speech is there a promise about 14 other members?

Senator RAE - Mr Temporary Chairman,I indicate to you that I do not intend to respond to inane interjections. I shall stop whenever there are any interjections, wait for order in the chamber and then continue.
