Mr E JAMES HARRISON (BLAXLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I preface my question to the Minister for Labour and National Service by reminding him that on 3rd October last he informed honorable members that on the 15th of this month he would bring before the Ministry of Labour Advisory Council for discussion the matter of laymen being denied, because of the provisions of the Judiciary Act. the right to appear before the Commonwealth Industrial Court. Can he give honorable members the result of the discussion of this very important question between the officers of the Department of Labour and National

Service, and the officers of the AttorneyGeneral's Department? Did the Minister, in fact, find it opportune to discuss this matter with the Ministry of Labour Advisory Council on the date which he nominated? If the discussion did take place, will he tell honorable members, further, the views of the representatives of the employer organizations, and those of the representatives of the Australian Council of Trade Unions? Finally, what conclusion has he come to himself in this matter?
