Senator THOMPSON (Queensland) . - I voted against a similar amendment, moved by Senator Payne, and for this industrial clause in the Cotton Industries Bounty Bill, because the Minister in charge of the measure gave the committee an assurance that, as the cotton industry would be largely carried on by families, the industrial provision would not apply to the opening up of new country or the preparation of the ground for planting. I should like the Leader of the Government in the Senate (Senator Daly) to give a similar assurance in connexion with this provision, and, if he does, I shall, in order to be consistent, support the clause. Otherwise I do not like it.
