Mr DUGALD THOMSON (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I understand that our 'contracts provide, as directed by Parliament, that the minimum wage shall be paid to all workmen employed by the contractor. I have no knowledge of any exception having been made in connexion with the contract to which the honorable member has referred. If that condition, or any other, is not being fulfilled, it will be the duty of the Government to see that that is done.
