Senator ELLIOTT (Victoria) .- I suggest the wisdom of inserting a new sub-clause to provide that, upon complaint being madeto the Board under the terms of paragraph h of sub-clause" 1 of clause 15, and a person being summoned to attend a sitting of the Board, the accused should have the right to call upon the Board to send; for witnesses in his behalf. At present the accused may not subpoana a witness.

Senator Russell - Any individual in the community may volunteer to give evidence.

Senator ELLIOTT - But the Board may not see fit to hear- that witness.

Power should -be provided -whereby an accused person -would have the right to compel the attendance ofa witness.

Suggest corrections
