The following answers to questions were circulated: -

Stevedoring Industry Commission.

Mr Chifley - On the 31st May, the honorable member for Corangamite (Mr. McDonald) asked me a question on the subject of the working conditions of lighthousekeepers. Supplementing my reply to the honorable member on that date, I now advise that it is proposed to hold a conference between the Fourth Division Officers Association of the Department of Trade and Customs - the association to which most lighthouse-keepers belong - the Department of Shipping and Fuel - the employing department - and the Commonwealth Public Service Board. This conference will consider the rates of pay and the conditions of employment of lighthouse-keepers. It is expected that the conference will take place in the near future.
