Senator TOWNLEY(12.39) —I am particularly worried about the contractors who have to pay a certain amount every month, a quite sizable amount sometimes, for the contract, purchase or hire of their rigs. I do not know how those people will be able to get quick determination of the compensation they receive, if in fact they ever get any, I would like the Minister to seek advice on that. How will these people who will definitely be affected be able to continue their payments, say, next month if this legislation is passed in the near future?
