Mr SPENDER (WARRINGAH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The Minister for Health and Social Services, speaking in the Senate, said that the Government would nothesitate to enforce the provisions of the Crimes Act against employers engaged in illegal lockouts, and persons who incited others to strike, providedevidence were available to justify prosecution. I ask the Prime Minister whether that was a statement of government policy, or merely an expression of opinion by an individual Minister? If it was a statement of government policy, will the Prime Minister say what the Government proposes to do to enforce the provisions' of the Crimes Act?
