Senator McMANUS asked the Attorney-

General, upon notice:

Will the Attorney-General supply a list of persons who have been financially assisted, after application to the Registrar, in Arbitration Act actions during the past 5 years, and the trade unions concerned.

Senator GREENWOOD-The answer to the honourable senator's question is as follows:

Since 1st January 1967, the Registrar has, pursuant to regulation 138 of the Conciliation and Arbitration Regulations, directed that financial assistance be given by the Commonwealth to the persons set out in the following list. The list also sets out the respective trade unions involved in the proceedings brought by those persons. In some cases, such as those where the applicant was awarded costs against the respondent or where the proceedings have not yet been completed, no application has been made by the applicant for a payment pursuant to the regulation. An asterisk has been placed against the names of persons in respect of whom the Registrar has determined that an amount should be paid pursuant to the regulation.
