Mr J FRANCIS (MORETON, QUEENSLAND) - I ask the Prime Minister if in regard to its National Insurance proposals the Government will follow the example set in connexion with the introduction of the " Conciliation and Arbitration Bill. It will be remembered that the second reading of the Conciliation and Arbitration Bill was moved and the measure explained by the Attorney-General (Mr. Latham) last year so that suoh persons as were vitally interested in the measure, and trade unionists in particular, might discuss its contents before the debate on it was resumed in this House. I have had a number of communications from persons connected with the great friendly society movement asking if similar facilities will be extended to them, bo that they may be able to discuss the provisions of the National Insurance Bill, and place their views before honorable members before the bill comes to be debated by them.
