Senator BRANSON (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - My question is addressed to the Minister representing the Acting Minister for Immigration. Will the Minister convey to his colleague, Mr. Opperman, who I believe is overseas, that there is an acute state of overfull employment in certain trades in Western Australia? Will he inform him that in the metal and electrical trades there are 10 vacancies for every job applicant and that in the building and construction trades there are 6 vacancies for every applicant? Will the Minister ask his colleague to make a special effort to recruit such tradesmen for Western Australia?
