Senator CLEMONS (Tasmania) . - The Minister can put in the additional words if he likes, but they are really in the provision now.

Senator Pearce - No; those words refer to a release by the President or Chairman.

Senator CLEMONS - I doubt whether it is necessary to add the words ; but if the Minister prefers to repeat the expression I do not mind, though it will make the provision a little redundant. I move -

That after the word " day," second occurring, line 5, the words " unless excused by the President or Chairman of the Commission, or" be inserted.

Amendment agreed to.-
