Mr E JAMES HARRISON (BLAXLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question, which is addressed to the Minister for Labour and National Service, supplements the previous question and answer regarding employment on the waterfront. Can the Minister say, on the information available to him, how much attendance money has been paid on the waterfront in recent months? Having regard to the fact that at present there is great waste of manpower on the waterfront and that the Government obviously is adopting devious means of keeping men off the list of unemployed, can the right honorable gentleman say what advantages have accrued to the Government from the passing by this Parliament of legislation which was supposed to overcome all the difficulties on the waterfront?
