Mr HARRISON (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the attention of the Minister for Labour and National Service been drawn to a manifesto issued by unions affected by the Bunnerong power-house dispute, declaring that should a stoppage occur the fault will not be that of the unions? Does the honorable gentleman concur in this view? Did Judge O'Mara, in the Commonwealth Arbitration Court, refuse to hear the dispute because he had not received satisfactory assurances that the decision of the court would be obeyed ? As the Government is pledged to the maintenance of industrial law and order, what steps does it propose to take to ensure that decisions of the court will be obeyed, and that the ruleof law will be enforced?
