Mr FROST (Franklin) . - I cannot understand why the Government should object to this proposal. The company most vitally interested in this project would offer no objection to the insertion of such a provision. Seeing that a section similarly worded to this amendment is to be found in the Wine Export Bounty Act, the Iron and Steel Bounty Act, the Iron and Steel Products Bounty Act, and others that I could name, no legitimate objection can be offered to the amendment. The company behind this enterprise has already expended £250,000 in various ways in preliminary investigations and experiments, and so far as I know, has always observed Arbitration Court and Wages Board awards. I am sure that it would welcome the inclusion of this provision in the bill.
