Mr HOLT (Fawkner) .- I move -

That, in sub-clause (4.), after the word "Tribunal", first occurring, the following words be inserted: - "or any party to a matter before it".

Under the clause the local authority may itself refer to the central tribunal for decision the question of whether a matter should be dealt with by the central tribunal. It can also do it if requested by the board or tribunal, and I propose that any party to a matter may also ask for such a reference to the central tribunal. It does hot follow that the central tribunal would necessarily deal with it, but it would be cognisant of it. The Minister may reply that the tribunal has the right to do this, but in many cases these matters are dealt with by the. local authority and the central authority is unaware of them.
