The CHAIRMAN - Is it the pleasure of the Committee that I put the clause paragraph by paragraph? Honorable Members. - Hear, hear.

Mi. WATSON (Bland- Treasurer).- I have underlined the words " any order or award," in paragraph b, but am not at present prepared to submit an amendment. My action in this matter will depend upon the result of our consideration of paragraph /, and it may be necessary for me to recommit the clause. I wish to make it clear that the words " any order or award " will allow the Court to differentiate in an award, as well as in a common rule, as to the conditions which the different parties should observe.

Paragraph agreed to. Paragraph c -

(c)   to fix maximum penalties for any breach or non-observance of any term of an order or ' award, not exceeding One thousand pounds in the case of an organization or Ten pounds in the case of any individual member of an organization, and to specify the organizations or persons to whom such penalties shall be paid : Provided that in the case of an organization of employers consisting of less than one hundred members, the maximum penalty may be fixed at any sum not exceeding such sum as would, when multiplied by the number of members, amount to one thousand pounds.
