The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator Marriott (TASMANIA) - Senator Rae,you should keep to the amendment you are now moving.

Senator RAE - Yes, I will. The previous Temporary Chairman accepted that there were certain general comments I should make at this stage to cover a number of amendments. However, in relation to that aspect I simply indicate that at an appropriate stage during the debate I would like the opportunity to make some comments. I move:

Leave out paragraph (b) of sub-clause (2), insert the following paragraph:

(b)   14 other members selected or appointed as hereinafter provided.

Clause 4 would then read:

(   1 ) There shall be a Commission by the name of the Schools Commission.

(2)   The Commission shall consist of-

(a)   A Chairman; and

(b)   14 other members selected or appointed as hereinafter provided . . .

Clause 4 then would go on to provide for those aspects to which I referred in opening my remarks. I commend the amendment to the Senate and seek the support of the Senate for the extension of the Commission from a membership of twelve to a membership of fifteen.
