Mr ANTHONY (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Finally, will the honorable member make available to the men a copy of the statement he made in the House last week relating to his success in dealing with strikes?

Mr WARD - As usual the honorable member is a little behind the times and a little out of date. I am pleased to announce that the men are no longer underground. As the result of negotiations with the representatives of the men they decided to leave the mine at 11.30 a.m. to-day. There is now no stoppage of production on the coal-fields. In the event of a similar occurrence and of the men being in need of entertainment, I think the best we could do for them would be to give them amplifying equipment so that they could listen to the squabbles in the United Australia party.
