Senator J V MACDONALD (QUEENSLAND) . - I have been informed that there is no industrial award in the Federal Capital Territory covering the conditions of labour of those employed outside public departments. I refer particularly to shop workers who, I understand, are sometimes required to work 65 and up to 70 hours a week. It is not right that workers in the territory should be sweated in this way.
