Mr Lynch asked the Minister for Labour, upon notice:

How many strikes occurred in each State during (a) December 1972, (b) January 1973 and (c) February 1973.


Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The latest available industrial disputes statistics published by the Commonwealth Statistician are the preliminary figures for December 1972 which were released on 9th March 1973. The number of industrial disputes (as defined and reported in that publication) in Australia during December 1972 was 121. Figures for the number of disputes are not published for each State monthly, but are published quarterly. The latest quarterly statistics that have been published are for the September 1972 quarter.
