Mr G B EDWARDS (SOUTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I am favorable to the Ministerial proposal ; but I would ask the Minister to consent to progress being reported. Certain remarks have been made in regard to the opinion of railway employes on this question, and, as the representative of one of the largest railway constituencies in the Commonwealth,I should like to reply to them. I do not think that there is anything to be gained by continuing the debate to-night. If progress were now reported, I do not think that much time would be occupied in dealing with this matter to-morrow.
