Senator WOOD (Queensland) -After listening to this debate as a layman, I think the points brought forward by Senator Chaney, following upon what Senator Greenwood said, probably represent the ideal. To set up a special Commonwealth court throughout the nation to deal with this type of work would involve a terrific amount of work and expenditure in putting up buildings and arranging for courts to traverse the whole of Australia. If the matter can be handled through the States which already have a set up of this kind there is no reason why, if it is properly set out, it cannot be worked through the States in a much more economic and probably in just as effective a manner as it could be done by the Australian Government. The points raised, and possibly the amendment moved by Senator Durack and others, may represent the ideal solution so far as this Bill is concerned.
