Mr CHIFLEY (MACQUARIE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Treasurer) - It is true that the honorable member made representations to me for the release of two female employees of the Taxation Department, and many similar requests have been received in respect of employees of the department in the States. There is a shortage of staff in the Taxation Branch, and almost 1,000,000 additional assessments have to be sent out this year. Therefore, it is impossible to release every employee who wishes to join one of the women's auxiliary services. However, the matter is being examined, and when the present rush of work is over, as many employees as possible will be released.
