Mr MOORE(11.03) —The amendments put forward by the Deputy Leader of the National Party, the honourable member for Gwydir (Mr Hunt), have aroused some concern to members of the Liberal Party of Australia. I do not think there is any doubt, as the Minister for Primary Industry said previously, that there are examples under which discrimination has taken place within the work force against women. While we do not endorse or accept the Government's proposition of quotas within the work force, we do support equal opportunity within the work force for women. As a consequence, we cannot support his opposition to the clause.
