Mr IRWIN (Mitchell) (2:45 AM) - I wish to comment on the necessity to appoint a full time chairman of the Austraiian Wool Commission. This will limit the choice of the best man available for the position. I think that the chairman of the Commission should be the counterpart of a chairman of directors of a company. If the position of chairman is open only to someone who is prepared to serve full time it will limit the number of people who will make themselves available. The people who are most able to serve in this position because they have a greater capacity and ability may not be prepared to serve full time. I believe that the Minister for Primary Industry (Mr Anthony) should give eanest consideration to this matter because the success of the Australian Wool Commission depends on who is appointed as its chairman.
