Senator GREENWOOD (Victoria) - This is a matter which the Opposition looked at. We did not take it any further for reasons which I am not able readily to recall. But I wonder whether the Attorney-General would state what is the reason why the Chairman is obliged to inform only the Attorney-General. Is there not logically the same consideration which I have mentioned with regard to members of the Commission applying to the Chairman of the Commission or is it that the Chairman of the Commission is a full-time member and therefore he would not be appointed unless he was able to devote his full time to his obligations, and naturally that would be a matter with which the Attorney-General would be concerned before that person's appointment? I only ask this for information. I think it is the area with which Senator Georges is also concerned.
