Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs, upon notice:

What was the total number of (a) First Division Officers, (b) Second Division Officers, (c) Third Division Officers, (d) Fourth Division Officers and (e) locally employed or unattached staff employed by his Department during each year since 1969.

Mr Peacock - The answer to the honourable member's question is set out in the table below. The figures quoted are as at 30 June of each year:


Column (2) shows percentages for gross operating surplus which is often used as an indication of changes in the share of profits in gross domestic product. Gross operating surplus is before deduction of depreciation, interest, company tax and dividends paid. It covers all enterprises, including government enterprises, and includes the gross operating surplus from owner-occupied dwellings.

Column (3) shows percentages for household income from interest, dividends, dwelling rent and profits of unincorporated enterprises which, except for small amounts of interest and dividends received directly by households from overseas, is appropriated out of the gross operating surplus used to derive column (2). Household income from interest includes, not only the interest paid or credited directly to households, but also interest on life and superannuation funds imputed to households. This latter component represents the net earnings of these funds which are accumulated for the benefit of policy holders and members.
