Dr EVATT - It appears that, under the State authority, employees on mines rescue stations are unable to have their claims considered by a State tribunal, and it has now been decided to appoint a commissioner to deal with the matter.

Mr James - Who is the commissioner?

Dr EVATT - -Mr. Connell.My colleague, the Minister for Labour and National Service, has signed the necessary papers. A decision has also been reached for the holiday rate to be paid in the district when the holiday was taken on May Day in lieu of Labour Day, but the condition is imposed that the ordinary rate shall be paid for Labour Day, which occurs next month. The effect of the decision is that men will have the benefit of one holiday rate during the year.
