Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister for Labour and National service, upon notice:

(1)   Is it a fact that there is no procedure in the Commonwealth for providing uniform statistics for recording the incidence and cause of industrial accidents and occupational diseases in particular industries in each State.

Mr Snedden - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   Yes. The reason is that industrial accident statistics are based on Workers' Compensation claims which are generally within the province of State governments and reflect differences in compensation legislation and practice that exist between States. Further details are contained in my answers to Questions Nos 414 and 415.
