Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (VicePresident of the Executive Council) . - I welcome the amendment for the reason, among others, that its effect willbe to provide a quorum of two members.As a matter of convenience of course, a memberof the Board should haveauthority, with theconsent of his colleagues, to administer the oath to a witness. I suggest that the words proposed tobe inserted should follow the word "may," so that the clause would read, "For the purpose? of this Act any member of the Board may on resolution of the Board, . . . summon any personto attend . . . ."

Amendment amended accordingly, and agreed to.
