Mr GROOM (Darling Downs) (Minister for Works and Railways) .- I move -

That the following new clause be added: - 3a. Section8 of the principal Act is amended -

(a)   by inserting after the word "orders" the words " encourages, advises or incites"; and

(b)   by adding at the end thereof the following sub-section: - " (2.) For the purposes of this section an organization shall be deemed to have ordered, encouraged, advised or incited its members to refuse to offer or accept employment, if -

(a)   the Committee of Management of the organization has ordered, encouraged, advised or incited members of the organization to refuse to offer or accept employment; or

(b)   an officer or officers of the Committee of Management has or have ordered, encouraged, advised or incited members of the organization to refuse to offer or accept employment, unless the Court before which the proceedings are brought is satisfied that the Committee of Management was not cognisant of the matter"

Section 8 of the Act is as follows : -

Any organization of employers or employees which, for the purpose of enforcing compliance with the demands of any employers or employees, orders its members to refuse to offer or accept employment, shall be deemed tobe guilty of a lockout or strike, as the case may be.

It will be seen that to the word " orders " in the section I now move the addition of the words " encourages, advises, or incites."
