Senator POYSER - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Labour. Is it a fact that because of the number of persons thrown out of work as a result of the previous Government's fiscal policies lost man hours far exceeded the man hours lost by industrial disputes which have occurred in recent months? Is it a fact that many of these persons were on the dole for many weeks and, indeed, in some cases for many months? Has this Government by its policies created a situation in which full employment has been virtually attained and in which the number of job vacancies at the moment exceeds the number of people registered as unemployed?
