Senator BAUME - I ask a supplementary question. It was not clear from the Minister's answer whether there will be jobs for school leavers at the end of the school year and I seek clarification.

Senator BISHOP -The Government will take whatever action it can in respect of the schemes I have outlined. Nobody in the Government can accurately forecast what the situation might be at the end of the year. The last figures available are those for August. We do not have the September figures yet. It is no good my looking into the future and saying what might happen. I am saying that the situation has received special attention by the Government. We not only recently set up a special committee of Cabinet to look at the prospects but also are collaborating with two of our Caucus committees to make sure that particular programs are applied to meet situations considered to be acute.
