Senator McCOLL (VICTORIA) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) - I am not prepared to answer, without notice, all the questions of the honorable senator. But as this matter was brought up yesterday, I have obtained the following statement from the Department: -

Negotiations have been proceeding between the Supervising Engineer and the representatives of the men. The latter desired some further information as to the scope of the Department's offer to increase the wages by10d. per day. The -particulars have recently been telegraphed to the Supervising Engineer to convey to the men, and it is hoped that a satisfactory arrangement will shortly be arrived at.

Suggest corrections
