Mr SEXTON (ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I wish to direct a question to the Minister for Labour and National Service. As the Minister yesterday disclosed that he had prior knowledge that Pope Industries Limited intended to retrench employees irrespective of the adverse effects of the Government's economic policy, will the Minister say whether he has advance information concerning retrenchments by any other employers? If he has, will he disclose such information to the House so that honorable Members may be better able to assess accurately the impact of Government policy and the possible further deterioration of employment and production?
