Senator PLAYFORD (South Australia) (Minister of Defence) . - Personally, if I were Minister of Trade and Customs, I would rather be relieved of the responsibility of deciding in cases such as would arise under this Bill. Therefore, I shall not oppose the request. I think it is a good deal better for the Minister to keep clear of industrial disputes, which would probably be a source of annoyance to him. It is a great deal better to leave them to the other tribunals mentioned in the Bill. In some States there are Arbitration Courts, in others there are other industrial tribunals, and in all there are Supreme Court Judges, before whom matters could be brought.
