Mr Stuart Robertson, last night, I secured the recommittal of the motion, I and moved an amended resolution that there be no penalties in industrial arbitration except for lockouts and strikes. Tiiis was carried by 101 votes to 15 and incorporated in the party's platform in lieu of Monday's resolution.
