Mr CALWELL (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) - I desire to ask a question of the forgotten Minister, the Minister for Labour and National Service. In view of the fact that several thousands of employees engaged in steel-making in the Port Kembla and Wollongong area of New South Wales have been, or are shortly to be, dismissed, what plans are being prepared by the Department of Labour and National Service for placing these men and the other 100,000 unemployed persons throughout Australia in full-time employment, so that these citizens can make their contributions to the productive capacity of the Commonwealth, and so that such contributions can be beneficially used in this prosperous age in Australian history?
