Wednesday, 27 May 1942

Senator ASHLEY - On Wednesday, the 13th May, Senator Allan MacDonald asked me, as the Minister representing the Minister for Labour and National Service, three questions regarding the granting of man-power protection to omnibus services throughout Australia. Answers were provided at the time to questions Nos. 1 and 2 but I promised to obtain and convey to the honorable senator a reply to question No. 3, which read as follows: -

Have any applications for man-power protection been received from Western Australian omnibus services?

The Minister for Labour and National Service has advised me that he has been informed that an application for protection from omnibus services in Western Australia was received on the 13th May, 1942, by the Deputy DirectorGeneral of Man-power in Perth. Manpower officials in Perth have been assisting these services by granting temporary reservations, and a recommendation on permanent policy to be adopted has been sent to the central man-power office in Sydney.This recommendation will be the subject of early consideration.
