Senator DUNCAN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Yesterday the Leader of the Government in the Senate said that' it was not the intention of the Government to take any steps whatsoever with regard to the present shipping trouble. I should like to ask him if he has noticed that a statement has been published to the effect that the Australian Shipping Board has conceded the demands of the Waterside Workers' Federation and thus stultified a decision of the Arbitration Court?

Senator Sir GEORGEPEARCE The attention of the Government has been directed to the statement in the press referred to by the honorable senator and inquiries are being made as to the position.
