Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister for Labour and National Service, upon notice:

Why did he, in reply to the first four paragraphs of my question No. 585 (Hansard, 7th May 1970, page 1881), merely refer me to a document published by his Department instead of giving me a public reply so that the press would have been in a position to evaluate the bona fides of the Commonwealth's position in relation to ' the International Labour Organisation.


Mr Snedden - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

My answer provided the honourable member with the information he sought. The 'Review of Australian Law and Practice relating to Conventions Adopted by the International Labour Conference', was distributed widely when it was published and copies are available from my Department.

Does the Government support the principles laid down by the Conciliation and Arbitration Commission in determing whether equal pay is appropriate.


Mr Snedden - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:
