Mr SCULLIN (YARRA, VICTORIA) - If an organization or an individual is bent on disturbing the peace of the country the police, under the direction of the State Governments, can deal with the trouble, and the support of the Commonwealth Government will be behind the States in their action. 1 urge the men to man the ships without delay. I urge the shipowners to give the fullest opportunity for wiser counsels to prevail. Any points in the dispute that require adjustment should be submitted at once to a conference presided over by the Conciliation Commissioner. I trust that reason and justice may prevail in this unfortunate matter.
