Senator KEATING (Tasmania) - I rise to again ask the Honorary Minister if he can give us information as to by what authority, constitutional, statutory, legal, or otherwise, can insure a response to an application which may be made to a Judge under clause 3 of this measure ? An application may be made to a Judge of the High Court, or to a Judge of the State Supreme Court, or to a member of a State industrial tribunal. I know that Ministers are rushed at this period of the session, but, perhaps, the Minister has had an opportunity in the meantime of consulting some of his officers, and can now give the Senate and the country an assurance that the Bill means more than mere paper.

Senator Lt.-Colonel Sir ALBERTGOULD (New South Wales)[9.9] -I also desire to prefer a request. With regard to the doubt which has been thrown on the actual position of one of the industries to which we are giving bounties, and also the further information which has been sought by honorable senators, will the Minister take steps, with a view to obtain that information for the first session of the new Parliament, if it cannot be supplied during the present session, so that we may know exactly what our position is in regard to that particular industry?
