Senator DALY - As a result of a direction by the Government to the effect that awards obtained by registered organizations of Public Service employees should be restricted in their application to members of such organizations, and to returned soldiers irrespective of whether they are members of organizations, instructions have been issued with the object of ascertaining those employees to whom the provisions of relative awards should be applied. On the question of dismissals I would invite attention to the following statement of the Prime Minister on the matter read by me in this chamber on 7th May last : -

The conditions in the contracts will, therefore, be that preference shall be given firstly to returned soldiers and sailors, and secondly to members of trade unions. This will also apply to employment and dismissals in the Public Service.
