Mr HAWORTH (Isaacs) .- I support the amendment. I think there is much merit in what the honorable member for Moreton (Mr. Killen) said, particularly if we read the reference to one-third in this clause in relation to the words " if, and only if, the Tribunal is satisfied ". In determining this matter we must consider the words preceding the arithmetical figure of onethird. It seems to me most remarkable that one can determine with certainty that one-third is right for all industries, because industries vary considerably. The Tribunal is being given a specific direction in relation to this mathematical figure and I should like to know why it has been selected as a suitable figure. I think we should examine this matter further to determine whether one-half does not meet the situation more appropriately.
