Mr McMAHON (LOWE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Labour and National Service) - I have received, and I shall present to the House, the third annual report by the President of the Commonwealth Conciliation and Arbitration Commission, furnished to me in accordance with section 70 of the Conciliation and Arbitration Act. Copies may be obtained from the Clerk. In his report the president made only one suggestion for amending legislation. Consideration had already been given to this matter and an amending regulation, which should meet the position, is being prepared. It is pleasing to note that the president has emphasized the value of recent amendments of the act, and that he is able to report that the objects of the act have been substantially achieved and that industrial friction is waning rather than increasing. I lay on the table the following paper: -

Conciliation and Arbitration Act - Commonwealth Conciliation and Arbitration Commission - Third Annual Report by President for year ended 13th August, 1959.
