Mr BEASLEY (WEST SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Supply and Development) - The procedure under StatutoryRule No. 168 is different from that under the previous regulations. StatutoryRuleNo- 168 gives power to the Coal Commissioner to remove an indus try from the list of protected industries, and also provides that the man-power authorities and thearmy authorities may be notified. The idea behind the statutory rule is undoubtedly that those employed in the industry may be required to serve in the army, or in some other capacity.

Mr Spender - -In the Army or in the Labour Corps.


Mr Spender - Have notices been served ?

Mr BEASLEY - I am not sure. The matter is being handled directly by ; the Coal Commission. I know, however, that the necessary machinery hasbeen set in motion, and advice tendered to the proper authorities.
