Mr DRAKEFORD (MARIBYRNONG, VICTORIA) - Is the Prime Minister aware that it is a common and growing practice among employers in Australia in occupations that do not require apprenticeships to discharge young men when approaching adult age, and to engage boys or youths at low rates of pay to replace them? If he is not aware of it, will he have early inquiries made? If he is aware of it, can he give the House any information as to the steps, if any, being taken to meet the situation arising from this serious state of affairs ?
