Mr LUCHETTI (MACQUARIE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Minister for Labour and National Service. I ask the Minister to tell the House what action is being taken by him to provide employment for physically handicapped persons. Will he state to what extent opportunities are being provided in Commonwealth employment and whether medical examinations have been relaxed in order to meet the special circumstances of the disabled? If medical examinations have not been eased in order to meet the needs of the handicapped, will the Minister take action immediately to remove these barriers to both permanent and temporary employment in the Commonwealth Public Service?
