Mr CALWELL (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) -Will the AttorneyGeneral consider the re-enactment of Statutory Rule No. 157, which was repealed by Statutory Rule No. 242, and which provided that persons should not. absent, themselves from employment on certain holidays? I make the request in view of the fact that the Victorian Government proposes to abolish two holidays which have been observed for many years, so that employers will not have to pay penalty rates to persons compulsorily employed on those days.
