Mr HOLT (Fawkner) .- I move -

That the following words be left out:- " and consent of all parties ".

If the amendment be made it would still leave in the hands of the tribunal or local authority determination of whether or not the matter warranted representation of the parties by counsel, solicitor or paid agent. It is utterly unreasonable that in cases of great complexity or which raise involved legal issues, if the tribunal itself decides that legal representation should be permitted, one party should be in the position to deny the advice and assistance which the tribunal would get from such representation.
