Senator WRIGHT (Tasmania) - I rise only to say that I am quite aware of the 2 fields of operation- the anti-trust law with which we are dealing now and the conciliation and arbitration industrial law with which we will deal partially tomorrow. But it is my view, as I quoted from the text to which I referred earlier, that the anti-trust laws should apply to industrial organisations disrupting business in the same way as they do to commercial organisations. When we come to the industrial laws, instead of their being left in a state of impotence I hope that the Government will accept its responsibility to bring them into a position of effectiveness so as to prevent the calamity that I suggest is challenging this nation.

Amendment negatived.
