Mr LATHAM (Kooyong) (AttorneyGeneral) . - This proposed new section is inserted at the request of all parties interested in the arbitration system and will facilitate the obtaining of information in regard to both awards and variations.

Mr Duncan-Hughes - "Will the copies of the awards and variations which are to be open for inspection at each registry be certified ?

Mr LATHAM - No. If it be necessary to prove an award in the court it will be easy to obtain the certificate of the Deputy Registrar on a particular copy for submission to the court.

Mr Duncan-Hughes - Why should not al] the copies be certified ?

Mr LATHAM - A certified copy means a particular document that is certified as correct. In the issuing of these copies such a certificate could only he given in print and would not be finally authoritative in the court. As a rule the awards are printed under the direction of the court, and I am not aware of any difficulty having arisen owing to lack of certification.

Proposed section agreed to.

Proposed section 25c -

In determining any industrial dispute under this act in which the rates of pay, or conditions of employment, applying to apprentices in any industry are in question, the court shall take into consideration any scheme of apprenticeship provided by or under any State law.
