Thursday, 3 December 1914

The PRESIDENT - I allowed Senator de Largie to proceed, and possibly I have no right to deprive Senator Henderson of the right of rejoinder, but I would remind both honorable senators that a mere dispute as to which Parliament first passed a compulsory Arbitration Act has nothing to do with the Bill now before the Chamber. As I permitted Senator de Largie to proceed. I do not propose to deny Senator Henderson the right to reply, but not at an., great length.

Senator HENDERSON - The Western Australian Act for about four years after its first passage was entirely voluntary, carrying with it conditions of conciliation open to any organization whatever, without any compulsory arbitration attached to it. I know this for a fact, because I was a member of the Board.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a third time.
