Mr RYAN (West Sydney) .- I suggest that the following words be added: - "and shall be deemed to be the legislative exercise of all the powers contained in the Commonwealth Constitution Act in addition to those contained in section 51, sub-sections 35 and 39." I desire that this Bill shall not merely be deemed as an exercise of the powers relating to conciliation and arbitration, but that if there is any other power in the Constitution it shall be held valid in respect thereof.

Mr Hughes - I cannot insert those words now, but if the clause is allowed to pass, and we have any wider authority. I shall have an amendment made in another place.
