Senator MILLINER asked the Minister representing the Minister for Labour and National Service, upon notice:

(1)   Is it a fact that workers' and employers' representatives at this year's meeting of the International Labour Organisation to be held in Geneva are to receive a sum of $20 a day allowance whilst attending the conference.

(2)   Would the Minister investigate this matter with a view to allowing a daily allowance considerably in excess of the $20 a day so that delegates will be able to live in a manner which would be expected of representatives of the Australian Government.

Senator WRIGHT The Minister for Labour and National Service has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

(1)   Workers' and employers' representatives at the International Labour Conference in Geneva this year receive a daily allowance of 125 Swiss Francs (approximately $A27). This rate was determined recently.
