PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS

Proposed Clauses to be inserted into Sections 5(n) and 5(o) 

(n)  The Centre must be managed or administered by responsible persons, and maintain the numbers of responsible persons in the Committee as majority. Details of what constitutes a ‘responsible person’ for this purpose are detailed in 5(o) below.

(o)  A Responsible person is person who is considered to have a degree of responsibility to the community as a whole and includes:

(1)  church authorities,

(2)  judges,

(3)  clergymen,

(4)  solicitors,

(5)  doctors, and

(6)  other professional persons, mayors, councillors, town clerks and members of parliament.

Generally, persons who are acceptable as having a degree of responsibility to the community as a whole are known to a broad section of the community because they perform a public function or they belong to a professional body (such as the Institute of Chartered Accountants, State Law Societies and Medical Registration Boards) which have a professional code of ethics and rules of conduct. Other persons who are acceptable are appointees of a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Persons who have received formal recognition from the Government for their services to the community (for example, an Order of Australia award) will also be considered to have the requisite degree of responsibility.
