Mr WATSON - The- honorable and learned member for Indi is right. When this amendment was given notice of, the Government contemplated leaving the maximum penalty to the determination of the Court, and, consequently, we proposed another amendment, that the members should be severally liable for whatever penalty the Court might determine. But in view of the fact that the Committee did not agree with bur proposal in that respect, I think that I had better ask leave to withdraw the amendment, and so leave the clause as it was originally drafted. This will apply to the next amendment, too.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn. Clause, as amended, agreed to. Clause. 55 -

The Court may, on the application of any party to an award, make an order in the nature of a mandamus or injunction to compel compliance with the award or to restrain its breach under pain of imprisonment, and no person to whom such order applies shall, after written notice of the order, be guilty of any contravention of the award by act or omission.

Penalty : Three months' imprisonment.
