Mr HOLLOWAY (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) (6:18 AM) . -Some time ago the Attorney-General(Mr. Menzies) promised thathe would consider the appointment of an Industrial Commissioner to take the place of the gentleman who had resigned that position. Half the trouble whichis experienced is caused by the Commonwealth Court of Conciliation and Arbitration being unable to deal quickly enough with the cases that come before it.

The honorable gentleman also promised that, if the experiment of the first appointment of an inspector to deal with clerical awards, such as those of bank clerks, insurance clerks, and the like, proved successful he would consider the appointment of an additional inspector. Every one is satisfied with the work of the gentleman who was appointed. It is impossible for him, however, to cover the whole of Australia, and a further appointment should be made.

I trust that, upon his return to Australia, the Attorney-General will give consideration to these two matters.
