Senator O'BRIEN(7.11 p.m.) —I just want clarification on something that is perhaps a little technical. In relation to section 88B as amended, I take it to refer to the performance of the commission's functions after it is seized of jurisdiction to deal with a set of matters in an industrial dispute. The commission would have to have regard to section 89A to establish whether there was an industrial dispute, and only after it had done that would it be referring to section 88B as to how it should perform its functions under the act. Is that correct?
