CHILD ENDOWMENT FOR N.S.W. Lang Government Bill Will Prevent Piecework Sydney, February 23. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
CHILD ENDOWMENT FOR N.S.W. Lang Government Bill Will Prevent Piecework Sydney, February 23. The State Cabinet has decided that the basic wage should be fixed on the standard of a husband and wife with- out children, and that endowment should be paid for all children. It is the desire of caucus that the present wage of £4 2/6. fixed on the standard of a husband, wife, and one child, should not be reduced. The living wage will be fixed by the Industrial Commissioner (Mr. Justice Piddington). The amending Industrial Arbitration Bill, which the Government will intro duce, gives the Commissioner power to review the wage once in six months, to prohibit piecework, contract work, bonus work, or any system of payment by results, unless the union concerned agrees to such payment. The Bill provides that the female wage shall be 80 per cent, of adult wage.
DIAMONDS ON A BEACH [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
DIAMONDS ON A BEACH Some years ago valuable diamond de- posits were discovered in Namaqua- land. South Africa, and there was a big rush South Africa and there was a big rush of prospectors. The region, situ ated on the coast near Alexander Bay, , is the property of the Union Govern ment, which, under the Diamond Act, forbade the taking of these stones. This action was adopted lest the placing of too many diamonds on the market should ruin a trade which was already : much depressed. Now, however, the magistrates' court ' at Springbok has decided that pros pecting on the beach below the low water mark is not illegal, whatever may be the case above. Consequently, hundreds of diamond diggers rushed to the field, which in the past has yiel ded stones worth £10.000,000. Admittedly, the legal position is doubtful, but Government circles at Cape Town do not regard the decision , as correct in law. The case will doubt less go to a superior court.

MR, LANG'S "HONEST" REPUDIATION "You Buy Our Products; We'll Pay Your Interest" BANK'S BIG SQUEEZE Sydney, February 23. Mr. Lang told electors of East Sydney to-night how Australia could repudiate honorably. The way to do it, he said, was to tell the London financial in terests that Australia could not pay interest on loans until Britain bought our products at reasonble prices. Australia would then have a better chance of selling her wool and wheat than if she regularly met her interest payments. Mr. Lang made the policy speech of the New South Wales Labor Party in the East Sydney Federal by-election campaign. The speech, made hi rhetoric lan guage, was principally an attack upon the financial institutions and "oversea interests." Mr. Lang 6aid that last week a con ference at Canberra had solemnly de- clared, when it endorsed the at titude and the policy of the Federal Treasurer, that default in some form faced Australia. The Treasurer had interviewed the financial institu tions, wh...
