Ludwig rang at BW and my request.

He had been in meeting at Mt Isa all day.

Advised that BW wanted to resign and take standard package.

Wanted Ludwig’s assistance in this.

Ludwig not interested in assisting.

Not interested in being involved in negotiations. Had spoken to Cambridge and told him to brief R Kenzie to have a go at Harrison & Smith

Same view as earlier re nothing wrong with political donations. Told him highly likely Wilson wld resign following day

SG.005.0151

There's Big Bill - "Nothing wrong with political donations".

Like Thiess's, Woodside's and the rest of Bruce's slush fund contributors.

And of course Bill's right - there's nothing wrong with properly declared political donations.

But there's a big problem with soliciting and receiving Secret Commissions - as Bill Ludwig himself told Judge Madgwick in sworn evidence to the Australian Industrial Relations Court in May 1996.

These paragraphs are just a sample of this full day's hearing - if you really want to understand the AWU Scandal it's well worth the time to read the entire transcript.
