Mr LYNCH (Flinders) (Minister for Labour and National Service) (12:57 PM) - by leave - I have 2 amendments. They refer to clauses 61 and 68. These clauses, in part, read:

Clause 61. (1.) Where, immediately before the commencing day, conciliation proceedings in respect of an industrial dispute commenced before a Commissioner have not been completed -

(a)   if that Commissioner becomes, onthe commencing day, a Conciliation Commissioner, the conciliation proceedings may, be continued before him as if the industrial dispute had been referred to him under the Principal Act as amended by this Act:

(b)   if that Commissioner becomes, on the commencing day, an arbitration Commissioner, the conciliation proceedings may be continued before him as if he were a Conciliation Commissioner to whom the industrial dispute had been referred in accordance with the Principal Act as amended by this Act, but that Commissioner shall not exercise powers of arbitration in respect of the industrial dispute; and

(c)   if a person has been directed by the Conciliation Commissioner to attend a conference that has not been commenced, or has not been completed, before the commencing day, the Principal Act as amended by this Act applies as if the direction had been given by a Conciliation Commissioner under the Principal Act, as so amended.
