Mr CROUCH (Corio) - I think that it is necessary that we should conclude with the words " from the date of the award or such variation." However much parties may desire a variation of an award, it is hardly likely that they will go to the Court to secure it six months or three months from the end of the term during which it will apply. I think that we should provide that the Court, upon considering a variation, should have the same power to extend the time during which the varied award shall apply as thev have to provide a time during which the original award shall apply.

Mr WATSON - I believe that sub-clause 2, just carried at my instance, meets the difficulty raised by the honorable and learned member; but I shall look into the matter, and, if necessary, will recommit the clause.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 37 -

The award of the Court shall be binding on - (

(b)   all parties who have been summoned to appear before the Court as parties to the dispute, whether they have appeared in answer to the summons or not, unless the Court is of opinion that they were improperly summoned before it as parties ;

(c)   all organizations and persons on whom the award is declared by the Court to be binding ; and (d) all members of organizations bound by the award.

Amendment (by Mr. Watson) agreed to-

That after the word " who," line 2, the words " appear or," be inserted.
