Mr HASLUCK - Some time ago we established within the Territory Administration a native employment advisory board with a full-time salaried officer with considerable experience of industrial matters in Australia at the head. The board held an' inquiry and will be submitting a report to the Administrator on some of the initial problems in this field. It is our intention - a direction has already been given - to establish within the Territory a department of trade and industry which will have in it a labour division to devote itself wholly and solely to exactly the sort of problem as that to which the honorable member referred. Hitherto labour conditions and rates of pay for the native worker have been governed by legislation - ordinances of the Territory passed by the Legislative Council.
