Mr DEDMAN - The procedure followed by my department is to ask the industry to put forward plans for its re-organization. These plans are examined by a committee consisting of an equal number of representatives of the employers and of the employees, with an independent chairman appointed by the department. Should any individual firm in the industry concerned take objection to the plans submitted, it is given an opportunity to state its objections to the department. However, the department has the task of diverting from nonessential industries a certain volume of labour, and it cannot agree that individual firms in any industry should be allowed to continue operating on the same scale as they have been operating in the past.
