Mr HOLLOWAY (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) (Minister for Labour and National Service) - I have the figures available. They were compiled yesterday, but reached me too late for presentation at yesterday's sitting. The total number of unemployed persons receiving unemployment benefit in Australia yesterday was 2,705, or 1,055 fewer than on Wednesday of last week. New South Wales still had 1,200 persons receiving unemployment benefit yesterday, which was 1,195 fewer than on Wednesday of last week. As will be seen from the figures that I have supplied, the number of unemployed persons receiving unemployment benefit is decreasing every day.
