Mr McMAHON (LOWE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Labour and National Service) - I see no relationship between the figures relative to the balance- of-payments problem, all of which are immediately localized in either the Treasury or the central bank, and the returns relating to registrations for employment and registrations of job vacancies. As to the latter part of the honorable gentleman's question, returns have to be obtained from the whole of Australia, and they have to be collated. 1 am certain that if I were to give any part of the information without the rest being made available, a completely wrong deduction could be made, and I am not prepared to permit this to happen.
