Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I move:

Omit the clause, insert the following clause: "13.- (1.) Section 109 of the Principal Act is repealed. "(2.) Upon the commencement of this Act, an order of the Commonwealth Industrial Court in force under section 109 of the Principal Act ceases to have effect.".

I believe that section 109 should be repealed altogether. In fact, in the new legislation section 109 will not have much work to do at all. As it is such an obnoxious section and such a blot on the statute book of a free country, it should be wiped out. For that reason, I have moved my amendment which would also make it impossible to collect fines already imposed.

Question put:

That the clause proposed to be omitted (Mr Clyde Cameron's) stand part of the Bill.

Suggest corrections
