Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - I say that the public servants of the Commonwealth are, under this Bill, given an opportunity to put their grievances before the Arbitration Court, and have them remedied. If the honorable senator asks me whether the President of the Arbitration Court may not make an award which will involve the payment of lower rates in one case than in another, I am unable to answer the question. That is a matter which will be within the discretion of the Court.


Senator McDougall - Then the Bill does not meet the difficulty I have suggested.
