Mr WATKINS (Newcastle) .I say at once that I believe some legislation on the lines proposed would be somewhat of an improvement on existing legislation, so that I do not approach the question in any mood of hostility. Like others I think that the Bill does not, in some respects, go far enough; but that is no reason why it should be treated differently from any other measure. It is proposed to completely change the system' of industrial arbitration ; and surely that is a matter important enough, not only for free and fair discussion on the second reading and in Committee, but to permit those outside who are interested to have some time to consider it.

Sir JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Treasurer) - Three days are set down for the second-reading discussion.
