Mr STEWART (Lang) - There is not a great deal contained in the Bill which the Minister for Labour and National Service (Mr Snedden) has just introduced. The Bill provides for amendments to the

Act which was passed in this Parliament during the last session. There is only one point I want to make about this Bill. This Bill makes provision for the amounts of remuneration to be paid to the Chairman of the Film Development Corporation and other members of the Corporation. This Bill fixes the rates for the Chairman at $40 for a meeting of 3 hours or more and $25 for a meeting lasting less than 3 hours. Other members of the Corporation will be paid $35 for a meeting of 3 hours or more and $20 if a meeting takes under 3 hours. There is no indication in the Bill as to how these figures were worked out. I think we are entitled to have this. If the Minister would be good enough to give that information we have no objection to the Bill.
