Senator GORTON - As the honorable senator no doubt knows, the C.S.I.R.O. is a statutory authority set up by the Government. Having decided the amount of the national resources that can be made available to the C.S.I.R.O. for all its activities and having in some cases directed that some particular research should be undertaken by it, the Government then leaves the direction of the component parts of the C.S.I.R.O. to the executive which has been appointed under the relevant legislation. The chiefs of divisions are then responsible to the executive for the running of the divisions under their authority. So I would not have any real knowledge of why in a particular division at a particular time some cleaners are or are not wanted. However, since the honorable senator has asked the question I shall ask the C.S.I.R.O. to indicate why this situation has arisen and give the honorable senator an answer.
