Mr Hayden asked the Minister for Employment and Industrial Relations, upon notice, on 17 August 1977:

(   1 ) How many (a) applications were received for apprenticeships, (b) apprenticeships were actually entered into and (c) apprentices graduated at the completion of their trade training during each of the last 10 years.

(2)   How many persons left their trades because of retirement, resignation or death during the same years.

(3)   Is he able to provide a breakdown of the information sought in parts (1) and (2) (a) for the major trades and (b) in respect of metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas in each State.


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

(   1 ) (a) Information on the number of apprenticeship applications received during each of the last 10 years is not available in my Department as applications to enter apprenticeship are lodged with the respective apprenticeship authority in each State. Normally these would considerably exceed the number of indentures entered into.

(   1) (b) The numbers of apprenticeships entered into (ie, new indentures registered) during each of the last 10 years is contained in Attachment A, which also provide a breakdown (as requested in Question 3) for the major trades and on a State basis.

(1)   (c) Similarly, the number of apprentices completing their trade training during each of the last 10 years is contained in Attachment B which also provides a breakdown (as requested in Question 3) for the major trades and on a State basis. Some caution should be exercised before any comparative analysis of these figures is made because I understand that procedures for recording completions have changed recently. It should also be noted that some distortion is present in the figures as a result of apprentices in both four and five year terms finishing their time in the same year.

(2)   Information on how many persons left their trades because of retirement, resignation or death during each of the last 10 years is not available.

 

(3)   The information sought for this part of the question is contained in the answer to part 1, above. This information is not available, however, on a metropolitan/nonmetropolitan basis.
