Senator GREENWOOD (VictoriaAttorneyGeneral) - I. move:

That the following new clause be inserted: "12a.- (1.) Sections 16 to 21. inclusive, of the Principal Act are repealed and the following sections inserted in their stead: -

16.   - (1.) A commissioner shall be paid salar} at the rate of Eleven thousand eight hundred and fifty dollars a year, and the Consolidated Revenue Fund is appropriated accordingly. (2.) A Commissioner shall be paid such allowances (not including an annual allowance) as are prescribed. 17.- (1.) A Full Bench of the Commission consists of at least three members of the Commission, each of whom is either a Presidential Mem,ber or an Arbitration Commissioner. (2.) A Full Bench of the Commission shall include at least two Presidential Members. (3.) The members of the Commission to constitute a Full Bench shall be determined by the President.'. "(2.) If a person holds office as the Senior Commissioner immediately before the date of commencement of this section, he shall be paid salary at the rate of Twelve thousand eight hundred and fifty dollars a year for so long as he continues to be a Commissioner and the salary payable to Commissioners generally does not exceed that amount.".

I move for the insertion of the new clause for the reasons which I outlined earlier. I do so for the purpose of overcoming the hiatus which would exist in the light of the decision to negative clause 12.

Suggest corrections
