Mr HAWORTH (Isaacs) .- The honorable member for Parramatta (Mr. Bowen) referred with great clarity to the fact that the President may, if he wishes, select a person with practical experience. If we recall clause 10 we will note that the President may have no opportunity of doing this. All he can do is select a person who has a knowledge of industry, commerce or public administration. As the honorable member for Mackellar (Mr. Wentworth) said, this amendment is only a refinement. lt makes the matter specific instead of leaving it in doubt. It is purely a matter of selecting a person who has actual experience and not only knowledge. What the honorable member for Parramatta said about clause 19 is not accurate because the President may have no opportunity to select a person with practical experience because those on the panel may have only knowledge.
