Mr MARTENS (Herbert) .- I associate myself with that request. In my electorate many workers are affected, and from them J! get a good deal of correspondence on the subject.

I ask the Prime Minister (Mr. Menzies) if he will take into consideration the policing of awards in Northern Queensland, particularly those dealing with the meat industry. Blatant breaches of awards are being committed by employers in the butchering industry. Although the hours prescribed are from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., many men in the industry are required to work from 3 a.m. till 11 p.m.

Suggest corrections
