Senator MISSEN (Victoria) - In regard to the question raised by the AttorneyGeneral about the provision for 15 sitting days, which of course is the next amendment after this one that we are considering, from discussion among some members of the Committee here it seems that 7 days would be an adequate period. The period of 15 days is the total time suggested for disallowance under the regulations, but I see no reason why this cannot be done more speedily. 1 would be quite happy with the suggestion to make it 7 days.

The suggestion has also been made that amendment No. 32, if it were changed in this way, would probably succeed in achieving what is desired. It could read: 'and such number of Senior Judges and other Judges not exceeding six in total, or such greater number as may be prescribed by Regulations from time to time'.
