Mr BRYSON - They have so much control that they can cause production to be interrupted incessantly. Surely the honorable gentleman does not contend that the Government or the miners federation controls the operation of coalmining ! I hope that when he contributes to the debate, his suggestions will be more fruitful than those of his leader (Mr. Menzies) or the other members of his party who have spoken, and that he will realize that there are two sides to every question and that the employees play a really important part in this and every other industry. The day has arrived when the workers must receive the treatment to which they are entitled. They are keeping industries going. We are ensuring that they shall receive a better deal than any anti-Labour government has been preparedto concede to them in the history of Australia. [Quorum formed.]
