Mr McMAHON (LOWE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Labour and National Service) - I believe that the assertions made by the honorable gentleman are incorrect. It is true that there are rehabilitation committees which look after the interests of people who have recently been discharged from gaol. It is a standing instruction to all regional employment officers that when approached on behalf of one of these people they are to do their best, in an unobtrusive way, without making the history of the person concerned publicly known, to see that such people are placed in employment, and to the best advantage. If there happens to be one case of which the honorable member knows in which the divisional officer or employment officer in a district has not done his best, and the honorable gentleman brings that case to my notice, I will have it attended to promptly.
