Mr HAROLD HOLT (HIGGINS, VICTORIA) - I am unable, offhand, to give the honorable gentleman the figures for Launceston, but as it happens, I can give him the latest figure for Tasmania. He spoke of rising unemployment in that State. That statement is not borne out by the official figures available to me, which show the total number of people in receipt of the unemployment benefit in Tasmania, as at 20th October, to be 90, a reduction of twenty on the preceding week.
