Mr Lynch asked the Minister for Labour, upon notice:

How many counselling interviews were provided for persons under the age of 21 years by the Commonwealth Employment Service in each of the last 10 calendar years.

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

Figures were not maintained for persons under the age of 21 years for the period 1963-1971. However figures for persons under 19 years were kept and these account for a very high percentage of the young people counselled by the Commonwealth Employment Service. The figures for the period are:


In 1972, 157,273 persons under 19 were counselled as were 2,259 persons between the ages of 19 and 21 years.
