Mr SNEDDEN (Bruce) (AttorneyGeneral) . - I am afraid that what the honorable member for Moreton (Mr. Killen) thinks is not what I think. In the amendments that have been circulated there is an objection to what he describes as discretion on the part of the Tribunal. We will be considering this later. I think the same discretion exists in this clause, because one must tie it up with other clauses which, in themselves, enable the Tribunal to reach a decision as to whether there is an agreement.

Mr Killen - Not under clause 35.

Mr SNEDDEN - I have expressed what I think is the position. As to the matter raised by the honorable member for McMillan (Mr. Buchanan) and supported by the honorable member for Isaacs (Mr. Haworth) I think there is power here.

Mr Buchanan - But industry does not.

Mr SNEDDEN - Out of a multitude of representations that I have received there has been one only in relation to this matter. I have had the advantage of talking to the people who made this representation and they have indicated that they are not vitally concerned with this matter. I think the position is quite clear.
