Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I want to set the record straight. If that is what I said I want to correct it at once. That is not what I meant.


Mr Malcolm Fraser - You did say it.


Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - If I said it I was wrong and I do not mind getting up and saying that I was wrong when I said it. I would rather be right than consistent and therefore I say that that is not my position. I do want the power to appoint.


Mr Malcolm Fraser - To appoint?


Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Yes, of course, the same as the conservative government had in 1934 and the same as those governments that succeeded it thereafter until 1952 had. I do want it. I believe it is very important.


Mr Kelly - What is wrong with public servants?


Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - The Public Service Board will not be appointing them in any case. They will be appointed by the Secretary of the Department.


Mr Kelly - What is wrong with that?


Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I want to appoint them. That is good enough reason for me.
