Mr CURTIN - I understand that two classes of men doing much the same kind of work belong to two different unions, one of which is registered under the Commonwealth Arbitration Court and the other under the New South Wales Arbitration Court. The judge of the Commonwealth Court has fixed a different rate of pay from that fixed by the State Arbitration judge. The men who received the lower rate may make comparisons between the work which they do, and the work done by those who receive the higher rate. All I can say is that " uniformity " is a word which appeals strongly to me at this time. I shall look into the matter raised by the honorable member.

Mr Prowse - Try to get the judges to agree.

Mr CURTIN - I shall endeavour to do that.
