I should like to ask one or two questiones with regard to this Clause. I do not know whether it is following the regular course, and I should like to know whether these Gentlemen are the ordinary Gentlemen appointed in this Clause.

They are the ordinary appointments. In fact, it is the re-appointment of everybody who was appointed last time.
