Mr BLUNDELL (Adelaide) .- I felt that there was a feeling among the unions that the way ought not to be opened for the inclusion of bogus unions, but the objection raised by the honorable member for Hunter (Mr. Charlton) is fatal to my amendment. At the same time, I think that the amendment foreshadowed by the honorable member for Yarra (Mr. Tudor) will open the way to the possibility of trouble in regard to defining what is a recognised bond fide organization. I trust that both sides will regard the Bill as an honest attempt to bring conflicting parties together, but if the Trades and Labour Councils are satisfied that the amendment which has been placed on the notice-paper by the honorable member for Yarra will provide all the protection they require, I shall not press mine, and, with the consent of the Committee, I would like to withdraw it.
