Senator RAE (Tasmania) - I would not want to be taken as in any way wishing to confine the right of Senator James McClelland to speak in relation to any of the matters which are involved in this Bill. It was an attempt to have the debate follow a particular course. Perhaps I should not have tried to explain what this amendment was all about by referring to some of the other amendments. I completely agree with what Senator Douglas McClelland has suggested, that we go on to a major debate, bearing in mind that the effect of this amendment will be an increase in the size of the proposed Schools Commission to fifteen. We deal with this by dealing with amendment No. 5 at this stage, and then we would go back to the preceding amendments.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
