Mr GROOM (Darling Downs) (Minister forWorks and Railways) .- I do not desire to express a definite opinion on the particular case mentioned at this juncture, but I may say that if there is a case the hearing of which has commenced, and in connexion with which the Presi dent has started taking evidence, that case will go on to a conclusion, and will not be interfered with in any way by this provision.

Mr Ryan - That applies to the general inquiry now before the Court ?

Mr GROOM - The President, I understand, is at present hearing a case relating to the hours to bo worked in a certain industry, and is informing his mind as to what he intends doing. Although he may be taking evidence concerning other matters, his mind is directed only to this case, andhis decision will apply only to that case.
