Mr CALWELL (Melbourne) (Leader of the Opposition) . - by leave - I move -

In proposed section 47c, omit sub-section (3.), insert the following sub-section: - "'(3.) The re-appointment of a person under this section shall be without probation.".

I do not know whether the board has advised the Prime Minister (Mr. Menzies) about this. I understand that it is the practice to make re-appointments without a period of probation. Perhaps this amendment could be considered for adoption, if not now, then in another place.

Mr Menzies - The re-appointments are made, in this instance, without a period of probation.

Mr CALWELL - Then the amendment is not necessary?

Mr Menzies - No.

Amendment - by leave - withdrawn.

Sitting suspended from 6 to 8 p.m.
