Senator WALKER (New South Wales) - I should like to point out that under this proposal the employers of coloured labour and the employers of white labour will benefit equally, so that, unintentionally, the former will relatively get more protection than the latter. Senator Pulsford has laid the case before the Committee very clearly ; and I must say that I am rather surprised that some of our friends in another place did not see what the effect of this legislation would be. Honorable members elsewhere were evidently led away by the argument that both measures would work in identically the same way, whereas the effect is quite different.
