Mr COSTA (BANKS, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Minister for Labour and National Service and refers to the civilian 'rehabilitation committees which, as he may know, voluntarily engage in an honorary capacity in helping persons who. for various reasons, have been committed to prison. When these citizens are discharged, the committees endeavour to have them reengaged rn gainful employment so that they may again take their place in civilian life. I understand that the employment branches of the Department of Labour and National Service refuse to help to find employment for such people. If this is a fact, will the Minister say how the citizens so affected can h" rehabilitated when employment agencies refuse to cooperate?
