Mr BRYANT (WILLS, VICTORIA) - I direct a question to the Minister for Territories. Is he aware that the Arbitrator in Papua and New Guinea recently made an award for magistrates in the Territory based on the principle of parity with officers performing similar functions in the Commonwealth Public Service and stated that he considered the principle should apply to all Territory officers? As the Administration in the Territory is refusing to apply this principle and is forcing all groups of officers to go to expensive and delaying arbitration, will the Minister direct the Administration to apply the principle to all officers without delay? There is much unrest in the Territory on this salaries question among both local and overseas officers.
