Senator FOLL (QUEENSLAND) (Minister for the Interior) - When the honorable senator previously spoke on this matter, I pointed out that steps were being taken to have it dealt with in a different manner from that in which it was being treated at that time, and arrangements were made to alter the prevailing system. Action must have been taken in the meantime, because a number of waterside workers whose permits had been taken away at that time have had them restored. I saw members of the Waterside Workers Federation in Brisbane last week. One case was causing a good deal of concern, and I asked the Minister for the Army to expedite it, in view of the fact that the permit had been held up for a considerable period. I shall again bring this matter under the notice of the Minister for the Army and the AttorneyGeneral, with a view to having it dealt with expeditiously.
