Mr CHARLTON (Hunter) .- I move -

That the following words be inserted in the proposed new section, after the word " strike " line 7: - "Provided that if a person desires to leave his work for private or other reasons he shall be exempt from the provisions of this section."

The unions are in doubt as to the effect of the proposed new section. They think it may have a dragnet effect, and be the means of imposing a penalty on an organization through the action of a few individuals. In any case, I think we ought to state perfectly clearly that the provision will not apply to individuals who have good reasons for absenting themselves from work.
