Mr HUGHES (Bendigo) (Prime Minister and -Attorney-General) . - I move -

That before the word " employees," sub-clause 4. the words " recognised organizations of " be inserted.

The effect of the amendment is that representatives of the employees will be chosen from and by recognised organizations. "Recognised organizations" is better than "organizations," simply because " recognised " is a broad term, the meaning of which, in fact, everybody knows. It is those organizations which stand for organized labour, and it is organized labour that this part of the Bill is intended to deal specifically with.
