Mr E G Whitlam (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) am asked the Minister Assisting the Prime Minister in Public Service Matters, upon notice, on 16 August 1977:

How many public servants were relocated in (a) Canberra and (b) Albury-Wodonga in 1 976-77.

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

(i)   The numbers relocated in 1976-77 were, in Canberra 28, in Albury-Wodonga 16.

(ii)   On 19 December 1976, I announced the Government's decision to relocate some 276 positions in several departments to Canberra from various capital cities in the interests of improved policy co-ordination. The staff involved were guaranteed at least 12 months notice of the move, and it is expected that the bulk of physical transfers of staff will take place at the end of the 1977 calendar year. Some staff have, however, decided to transfer earlier, and, with the agreement of departmental management, 15 officers had effected transfer by 30 June 19777 These are included in (i) above.
