Senator GREIG (12:22 PM) —I ask either Senator Faulkner or perhaps the minister two questions. Paragraph (3) of Labor amendment (2) refers to an AAT member, or at least the `President or Deputy President and who is enrolled as a legal practitioner of a Federal Court or of the Supreme Court of a State or Territory and has been enrolled for at least 5 years'. Firstly, is it the case that there is only one president and one deputy president, or are there a number of deputy presidents? Secondly, is it possible that an AAT member could be enrolled as a legal practitioner but not practising as such? Is it possible to be on the books, as it were, but not employed within that system, or does it follow that you would have to be on the books in order to be on the AAT in the first instance?
