Mr MENZIES - I thought I announced in the House some time ago that I proposed to convene this conference so that my colleagues and I might discuss with the Premiers the problem of trying to achieve some uniformity in the methods of wage fixation.

Mr Ward -Is that all?

Mr MENZIES - I said on that occasion - and I repeat now for the benefit of the honorable member for East Sydney - that this indicated not that this Government desired to depress wage rates, but that it desired to obtain uniformity of methods.

Mr Ward - Is that the only subject listed for discussion?
