Senator McLEAY - Has the attention of the Leader of the Senate been drawn to the fact that at Lithgow 4,500 men are on strike, that 1,400 brick-makers are idle, and that 60 engineers and ironworkers who were repairing overseas vessels have ceased work, as have also the men employed in three collieries in New South Wales? Is he also aware that urgent requests for coal have been received from South Australia and Victoria? Can the Minister give an assurance that the Government will do all in its power to get these men back to work as quickly as possible, and also that arbitration awards will be observed?
