Decision for referendum probable Federal ministers eager to stabilise marketing absence of unanimity by states regretted although it May not hurriedly make up its mind the Federal Cabinet which will meet in Melbourne on monday will give immediate consideration to the question of holding a referendum on an amendment to the Constitution designed to safeguard marketing schemes affected by the privy Council decision in the James Case. Before the departure from Adelaide tonight of the remaining members of the Commonwealth delegation it was Learned that the present feeling among Federal minis ters indicates the extreme probability of their final decision being for a referendum on a Brief simply worded Amend ment of the Constitution to provide undoubted Powers Over the marketing of primary products. The problem is an awkward one for the ministry because of the refusal of three states at the premiers conference in Adelaide this week to sup port a motion favouring a referendum. Disappointment at this was expressed by the prime minister or. Lyons on his return to Melbourne while in Adelaide the Federal attorney general or. Menzies said that the Mere fact that a state government was opposed to a constitutional amendment was not conclusive evidence that a majority of the people in that state would reject it. Qualified support for a referendum i was Given by or. R. S. Richards m.p.,1 a former Premier of South Australia who is state president of the australian ? labor party. Federal Cabinet May refrain from making a Hasty decision on the Market ing question says a message from Mel Bourne because it is considered that primary producers Are now enjoying stable prices which Are not Likely to be upset for this season at least. The prime minister said on his arrival in Melbourne today that he 4. Hoped the premiers conference would i produce much Good although at the moment some observers might be inclined to take a pessimistic View. The Commonwealth government is naturally disappointed that the states1 could not agree on the necessity for revising the Constitution to give the ? Commonwealth Power to Deal with the i orderly marketing of primary pro ducts he said. Absence of agreement in the absence of agreement by a majority of states it becomes extremely \ difficult for the Commonwealth to de Vise Means for maintaining the system which has worked so satisfactorily in the past. Those states which refused to agree to an amendment of the Constitution have in effect thrown upon the Commonwealth full responsibility for protecting the primary industries concerned. The atmosphere of the con i Ference was with one very minor exception Friendly and the greatest spirit of Goodwill prevailed or. Lyons added. ? j further Steps toward the 40-hour i week aim probably will be taken in i both political and Industrial labor Fields of Victoria following the indecisive action of the premiers Confer 1 ence.

J labor members said today that in their opinion a firmer attitude on the part of or. Dunstan and the Premier of South Australia or. Butler would have resulted in the premiers conference affirm ing its belief in the 40-Bonr Prin Ciple. Obviously or.
