Mr GROOM (Darling Downs) (Minister for Works and Railways) . - It is section 6 of the principal Act that imposes the penalty for anything done in the nature of a lockout or strike; we are here dealing only with the definitions of " lockout " and "strike," which it is proposed to widen in the manner referred to by the honorable member. If what he spoke of took place, the organization would not be liable, but only the persons who, acting in combination, totally or partially refuse to accept work. An organization would not be liable for the acts in the nature of strikes committed by isolated sections of its members; the liability would attach only to the strikers themselves.
