Mr McMAHON (Lowe) (Minister for Labour and National Service) (2:58 AM) . - I make this statement merely to explain that the amendment proposed by the honorable gentleman for Hindmarsh (Mr. Clyde Cameron) would, in effect, introduce a fundamental change in the method of computing compensation, and would also mean fundamental changes in the principles that now guide the Government in amending the legislation. It would also mean that a new section would have to be incorporated in the act to define " special compensation " and how that special compensation was to be computed. For those reasons the Government has no alternative but to reject the amendment.

Question put -

That the clause proposed to be omitted (Mr. Clyde Cameron's amendment) stand part of the bill.
