Mr C RILEY (COOK, NEW SOUTH WALES) (5:30 AM) . - I am not much concerned about the amendment, but I wish to point out that if Parliament decides to license transport workers, it will be equally right to license transport employers, and that therefore the precedent now being set up is a dangerous one. If it is my privilege to be elected to the next Parliament in support of a Labour government, I shall not hesitate to ask that Government to use the power conferred by this bill to license transport employers. Furthermore, as the power to issue a license will carry with it the power to charge license fees, a Labour government will be able to decide just what employers shall be permitted to carry out the transport or other services of the country.

Amendment agreed to.
