Mr Snedden asked the Minister for Labor and Immigration, upon notice:

(   1 ) With reference to the answer to question No 2 1 1 (Hansard, 30 July 1974, page 832) concerning the establishment of a bureau within the Department of Labor and Immigration as discussed at the Industrial Peace Conference, what progress has been made in the considerations of the Government.

(2)   When is it expected that the bureau will be operating.

(3)   Does the delay in establishing the bureau indicate that the Government has afforded it low priority.

(4)   If not, why has there been such a long delay in establishing the bureau.

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

(   1 ) to (4) As the Prime Minister indicated in his answer to which the right honourable member refers, the establishment of an office of economic and social research, incorporating a bureau of industrial information within my Department, is under consideration by the Government. Other more immediate matters have resulted in the proposal not proceeding as speedily as I would have wished.
