Senator GREENWOOD (Victoria) - I rise on this Division only because I asked a question of the Minister (Senator Bishop) yesterday in his capacity as representing the Minister for Labor and Immigration in regard to the criterion by which it is decided whether or not some people who are unemployed are to get the ordinary unemployment benefit, which I think is $3 1 a week, or whether they are to get the unemployment benefit which the Government has said is available to those who are affected by Government tariff cuts. This benefit could well be the average wage they were receiving over the last 6 months. In the answer which the Minister gave he referred to the role of the Minister for Manufacturing Industry (Mr Enderby) in the determining of that criterion. I ask him now: Where does the Minister for Manufacturing Industry come into this area? What is his role?
