Mr HOLLOWAY - I have not read of the possibility of all iron foundries in Victoria being closed because of a dispute in regard to wages. Had there been such a possibility, it would have been brought to my notice. I cannot fight a shadow, but must have substantial grounds for any action that I may take. If the action referred to by the honorable member has been taken by employees, it would be in contravention of the regulations relating to wage-pegging. I have heard that some employees have acted in that way, and that there are employers who have conspired with their men to violate the regulations. Proof of such action has to be available before a prosecution can be launched. .
