Mr CURTIN - The report of the Social Security Committee has been carefully considered by the Government. It makes extended reference to the inability of men and women to obtain employment in normal times. The Government is not in a position to deal with the subject immediately, because it is fully occupied on other more urgent matters, but I believe that the honorable member is right in submitting his question and in suggesting that as early as practicable an effort should be made to make certain that an opportunity will be given to every man and woman to obtain employment. If that cannot be afforded, provision for the subsistence of the workless should be assured.
