Mr Snedden asked the Prime Minister, upon notice:

How many (a) women and (b) men have sat on selection panels, tribunals and other appeal boards established under the Public Service Act in the last 1 2 months.


Mr Whitlam - The answer to the right honourable member's question is as follows:

The Public Service Board has advised me that information on the number of women and men who have sat on selection panels, tribunals and other appeal boards established under the Public Service Act in the last 1 2 months is not available.

As outlined in my previous answer (Hansard, 17 October 1 974, p.2582), surveys are being conducted on the representation of men and women on Promotions Appeal Committees in New South Wales, South Australia and the Australian Capital Territory.

The Public Service Board has advised that preliminary results of the survey of the A.C.T. Promotions Appeal Committees covering the eight-week period 1 March 1974 to 30 April 1974, reveal that, apart from the Chairman, the total membership consisted of (a) 1 1 women and (b) 208 men.
