Senator DALY (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) - Senator Colebatch is in error, for the sugar company's case was decided on an entirely different point. The point raised by Senator Colebatch relate? to section 21aa. All that the High Court held in the case of the Waterside Workers Federation v. Alexander, 25 C.L.R., page 35, was that under section 21aa, insofar as the legislation purported to take away the right of prohibition of the High Court, it was invalid.

Senator Colebatch - That is the same point that was decided in the coal case.
