There are nine amendments here and they have been brought in more or less by agreement. Amendment No. 1 is to give minor curers larger representation both on the Bacon Marketing Board and on the Pigs Marketing Board. I move amendment No. 1:—
In page 7, before Section 14, to insert a new section as follows:
(1) From and after the biennial election (in this section referred to as the next election) of ordinary members of the board to be held next after the passing of this Act, so much of sub-section (3) of Section 74 of the Principal Act as provides that the number of members of the board shall be eight and the number of ordinary members of the board shall be seven shall cease to have effect, and in lieu thereof it is hereby enacted that from and after the next election the number of members of the board shall be nine and the number of ordinary members of the board shall be eight.
(2) For the purposes of giving full effect to the next preceding sub-section of this section, the following provisions of Part III of the Principal Act shall, from and after the next election, be amended in the following respects and the said Part III shall be construed and have effect accordingly, that is to say:—
(a) by the deletion in sub-section (3) of Section 74 of the words "eight" and "seven" and the respective substitution therefor of the words "nine" and "eight";
(b) by the deletion in sub-sections (2) and (3) of Section 77 of the word "seven" wherever it occurs and the substitution therefor in each case of the word "eight."
