Mr BAMFORD (Herbert) - The Prime Minister has omitted to explain who is to represent the industrial organizations towhich he has referred. The Bill, I understand, contains a provision which prohibits the employment of counsel.


Mr Watson - We propose to insert a new clause dealing with that matter to follow clause 35.

Amendments agreed to. Clause, as amended, agreed to. Clause 36 -

The award shall be framed in such a manner as to best express the decision of the Court, and to avoid .unnecessary technicality, and shall continue in force, subject to any variation, until a new award has been made ; or, if so decided by the Court, for any term not exceeding five years from the making thereof.


Mr WATSON - I desire to Walter the form of this clause, with a view to making its provisions clear. The amendment which I shall submit is largely one of draftsmanship. I move -

That after the word "shall," line 3, the words " subject to any variation ordered by the Court," be -inserted.
