Mr N H Bowen (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I think the honorable member for Cunningham (Mr Connor) has misunderstood the position completely. What I am saying is that the amendment, in the form in which he proposes it, simply will not fit into the current Act and for that reason it is totally unaceptable. As to the other matters he referred to in such tendentious terms. I will simply say his facts were not correct when he dealt with the rate of progress and the achievements of the Commissioner. Without going into the details of the position, again I state that insofar as the Act is not operating in a way that is satisfactory, it is precisely this that is under consideration by the Government.

The Attorney-General has received a report which he is considering. I do not want to cover the whole of that ground again.

Question put:

That (he amendment (Mr Connor's) be agreed to.
