Mr. Morgans, the Premier, stated he was quite in
accord with Mr. Wilson's statement in respect to the
railway policy. He considered the time had come
when the eight-hours concession should be granted.
It was the men's political right, seeing the resolution
had been passed by Parliament, and the Government
should endeavour to see the mandate was carried
out. The Arbitration Bill had the entire sympathy
of the Government, and it was the intention before
the session ended to try to give effect to the prin-
ciples involved. There are several clauses, par-
ticularly 107, dealing with the railway unions, which
require remodelling. The Early Closing Act would
also be re-enacted. The Workers' Compensation Bill
would receive the best attention of the Government,
which hoped to get a satisfactory bill through this
session. The new Government was in sympathy
with the formation of a board to control the Civil
Service, and would endeavour to give effect to that
idea at the earliest opportunity. He also favoured a
Public Works Board to control the expenditure of
public money. The Government recognised it would
inherit a legacy from the late Government of deal-
ing with the case of the general manager for rail-
ways. He had no doubt at an early date it would
be able to arrive at a satisfactory settlement.
