Senator HENTY - Yes, I noticed the Press comment. I do not know whether it can be relied upon entirely, but I was perturbed to note that it has been said that Mr. Renshaw has rejected the very reasonable proposal by the Federal Government that two experts should be appointed, one from each side, with power to appoint an umpire if they so wished. Apparently Mr. Renshaw has said that he would not be prepared to accept the umpire's decision. 1 was rather perturbed by this report. T have noted the proposal for what could be an uneconomic arrangement. For one airline to run to Dubbo in the morning and for the other to run in the afternoon could be just as uneconomic as one airline running the service for one month and the other running it for the next month. We could have the staff of one airline playing golf in the morning while the staff of the other was working, arid then we would have the staff of the first airline working while the staff of the second went off somewhere else. 1 see no reason why there should bc that type of uneconomic service to Dubbo or to Tamworth.
