Senator James McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Before we leave this group of clauses I should like to record the Australian Labor Party's opposition to clause 19, which is the clause which introduces provisions for the conduct of secret ballots in unions when an industrial dispute occurs or is threatening. Because of the limitations of time I do not wish to regurgitate what has already been said about this matter.

The CHAIRMAN (Senator Prowse - Order! We have already considered clause 19. We are now dealing with clause 42 and the amendment thereto.

Senator James McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Then I ask for the Committee's indulgence to consider this matter out of order.

Senator Murphy - To save time I suggest that we revert to this clause and divide on the matter if there is sufficient time. 1 suggest that we reconsider the clause. Obviously there has been some misunderstanding about which clause we are dealing with.
