Mr MULCAHY (Lang) .- I support the amendment moved by the Deputy Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Forde), because I think that when we assist an industry of this description the workers associated with it should be protected. Last year I inspected the Ford Motor Works at Corio and was astonished to see that among the employees there were none of more than 40 years of age. The manager told me that men older than 40 were not kept in the employ of the firm. That is due to the American speed-up system. If we allow industries to establish themselves in Australia behind .the tariff wall we should take steps to safeguard the interests of the employees.
