Mr HOLLOWAY (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) - I also urge the Attorney-General to appoint an additional industrial inspector to police clerical workers' awards. It is generally admitted that the experiment made some years ago of appointing an inspector has proved very successful, but one officer cannot police all awards. Will the Attorney-General consider the desirability of appointing another inspector?

On previous occasions, I have mentioned the need to effect improvements to the building in Melbourne in which the Arbitration Court meets. If improvements be not soon carried out, a tragedy will occur. Elderly persons, including judges, find it particularly difficult, especially in summer, to climb the long flight of stairs to the court room.

Mr Menzies - It is a terrible building, and I am always doing my best to get one more suitable.

Mr HOLLOWAY - I am not very short-winded, . but, after climbing the stairs, I have to sit down to regain my breath before entering the court room. I often wonder how some persons, who are older and heavier, are able to reach the court room at all.
