Mr BURY (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Labour and National Service) - Yes, 1 find it perfectly compatible. Of course, the case mentioned has features of its own. It was brought by Commonwealth Hostels Ltd against a particular award. There are certain features of this case which do not lend themselves easily to a general situation. In any case, an issue so far reaching as is the general level of payment as between men and women would in the normal course be decided by the presidential members of the Commonwealth Conciliation and Arbitration Commission. They will hear the case later in the year and will then pronounce their verdict. But the statement that was allegedly made - I have not seen the actual statement - would be in line with our policy and compatible with our obligations.
