Mr REID - I move-

That the words " and shall also contain the word ' employers ' or ' employees,' as the case may be," be left out.

We quite agree with the late Government, that, if this requirement were insisted upon, in every case, it would cause inconvenience.

Amendment agreed to.

Schedule, as amended, agreed to.

Amendment (by Mr. Reid) agreed to -

That the folowing new clause be inserted : - " 52A. Where the Court, or any Court of sum mary jurisdiction, imposes any penalty for any. breach or- non-observance of any term of an order or award, it may order that the penalty, or any part thereof, be paid into the Consolidated Revenue Fund, or to such organization or person as is specified in the order."

Mr REID - I move-

That the following new clause be inserted : - " 95A. For the purposes of this Act, a State

Court or Magistrate, whose jurisdiction is limited, as to area, subject-matter, or parties,, to any part of a State, shall be deemed to have jurisdiction throughout the State.

Provided that on the hearing of any proceeding in a Court of summary "jurisdiction for therecovery of any penalty, fine, fee, levy, or due, the Court, if in the interests of justice it thinks fit, may adjourn the hearing to a Court of summaryjurisdiction to be held at some other place in the same State."

I may explain that the object of this new clause is to destroy the rigidity of States boundaries, in order to promote the elasticity of Federal administration.

Proposed new clause agreed to.
