Mr LONSDALE (New England) - This clause provides that all industrial disputes which are certified bv the Registrar as proper to be dealt with "in the public interest," shall be dealt with by the Court. It ought to be made, clear that the clause refers only to Federal disputes - disputes extending beyond the 'limits of any one State.

Mr Watson - It must be such a dispute.

Mr LONSDALE - Yes ; but some of the amendments already made have been in ยป the direction -of trying to make the Bill as much as possible applicable to State matters.
