Senator DUNCAN (New South Wales) . - I regret very much that the few remarks I made disturbed my honorable and esteemed friend, Senator Thomas. I had no intention of slighting him or even of suggesting that he would be in favour of what he alleges I said he would do. What I intended to say was that the policy he indorsed would have that effect. I know that he is just as keenly desirous as any of us that Australia should prosper, and that the fullest employment should be given to Australian workers at the highest wages. If it is necessary to do so, I apologize to him.
