Senator HENDERSON (Western Aus tralia) . - I regret to hear the Minister announce his willingness practically to accept the request to omit paragraph d. I think it will be found in the end to be a serious mistake to do so. There are conditions which may surround operations under this Bill in certain States that do not exist in other States. In Tasmania, for instance, there could be no appeal to a Wages Board or an Arbitration Court.

Queensland is practically in the same position. If we cut off a possible approach to the Minister, there is just a possibility that people living in States which are behind the times in respect of industrial legislationmaysuffer some injustice.
