Mr COTTER (KALGOORLIE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) -I should like to ask a question of the Minister for Employment and Industrial Relations. The Minister would be aware that over the past 12 months or so there have been large scale retrenchments from the gold mining industry in Western Australia. I ask: Has this added significantly to unemployment in the eastern goldfields area? Will the Minister say what steps his Department has taken to alleviate the situation? Were these steps successful? Is there in fact a shortage of skilled workers in the Kalgoorlie region which is severely hampering new development?
