On 10 April 1 974 the Minister for Education tabled in Parliament the First Report of the Australian Committee on Technical and Further Education. The Committee recommended that the proposed Commission on Technical and Further Education consult with State authorities to remove any problems women may have in gaining access to courses within technical and further education; that technical and further education institutions should act more positively towards women by providing a range of refresher courses and arranging attendance times to suit married women; that technical and further education authorities should examine the possibility that the absence of facilities for child care inhibits women attending attending courses.

A sub-committee was established by Joint Council at its 50th meeting as an appropriate means of considering various matters relevant to the employment of women in the Australian Public Service. The sub-committee's charter includes a continuing review of development affecting the employment of women.

The Government is currently reviewing its personnel policies and procedures in relation to women in the Defence Force.
