Mr HOLLOWAY (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) (Minister for Labour and National Service) - I shall certainly do so. The matter of State officers loaned to the Commonwealthwho have decided not to continue as permanent members of the Commonwealth Public Service has been handled by the Public Service Board. Should a State officer seek appointment to a vacant position in the Commonwealth Public Service, he has to stand the test of appeals by colleagueswho are members of thePublic Service Association. Some men who could not be retainedin the Commonwealth Public Service because they were not permanent Commonwealth or State officers had to be dismissed, but I believe that 90 per cent, or more of the total number affected have received appointments. I shall discuss with the State authorities the matter of filling suitable positions that are vacant in the State service.
