Mr E JAMES HARRISON (BLAXLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask a question without notice of the Minister for Labour and National Service. Is he conscious of the confusion and pressure now existing amongst conciliation commissioners since the Commonwealth Conciliation and Arbitration Commission decided that there should not be a flow-on of the decision in the metal trades margins case? The principle of flow-on was established in 1956, continued in 1959 and extended in 1963. In view of the almost impossible task confronting the present commission in preventing substantial industrial unrest because of delays in hearing applications for award variations based on changed work value, will the Minister say how many additional conciliation commissioners will be appointed to meet the situation? When will some action be taken in the matter?
