Mr MAXWELL (Fawkner) .- The clause in its present form appear!) somewhat confusing, because a dispute may be confined to one State. In fact, that is the distinction between a dispute and an industrial dispute, which, under the present Act extends beyond the limits of any one State. As the Prime Minister (Mr. Hughes) is now in the Chamber, I desire to say that I have moved an amendment to make the clause read -

The Governor-General may appoint a Special Tribunal or Tribunals for the prevention of or settlement of any industrial dispute or disputes.

The remaining portion of the clause would then be deleted.

Mr Hughes - On the face of it there appears to be no objection to the amendment.

Mr Charlton - I am prepared to accept it.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 14 agreed to.

Progress reported.
