Mr CURTIN (KINGSFORD-SMITH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I intended to direct my question to the Minister for Immigration, but I do not think he is in the House. He is not here this morning. I shall direct my question, therefore, to the Vice-President of the Executive Council.

Mr Pearce - He is in the Senate.

Mr CURTIN - It seems that, as usual hardly any Ministers are on tap. I shall direct the question to the Minister for Labour and National Service. I take it that he is here. In view of the alarming increase of the number of unemployed generally, will the Minister take steps to establish the long-promised Commonwealth Employment Office at Rainbow-street, Kingsford, in the Kingsford-Smith electorate? Is the Minister aware that many unemployed in the electorate of KingsfordSmith are forced to walk up to 8 miles to register for work or unemployment benefit?
