Mr JAMES (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the ActingLeader of the House whether the report in the press is correct, which states that he would not- appoint a local arbitrator to intervene in the dispute at Darwin, but that when the men resumed work he proposed to ask Judge DrakeBrockman to visit Darwin to hear the claims of the men? Does not the right honor able gentleman think that the best method to settle this dispute is to appoint a local arbitrator as is desired in Darwin? I understand that if he is prepared to do this the men will resume work.
