Dr GUN (Kingston) (2:53 AM) - The Minister's answer seems to me to be rather unsatisfactory. It means that if he, as the Minister concerned, does not want a particular person to remain on the Commission as a deputy he has to label him as a cheat or as someone who has been guilty of some misconduct in order to get rid of him.

Amendment negatived.

Clause agreed to.

Clauses 12 to 15 - by leave - taken together, and agreed to.

Clause 16. (1.) If a member -

(a)   being the Chairman, engages in paid employment outside the duties of his office;

(c)   is absent, except on leave granted by the Minister, from three consecutive meetings of the Commission; or

(d)   fails to comply- with his obligations under the next succeeding sub-section, the Minister shall, by notice published in the Gazette, remove the member from office. (2.)
