Mr E JAMES HARRISON (BLAXLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the

Minister for Labour and National Service whether he has been reliably quoted as stating, in connexion with the unemployment figures issued for August, that the number of workers employed in the larger private factories regularly surveyed by the Department of Labour and National Service fell by another 1,614 during that month, If the right honorable gentleman has been faithfully quoted, will he indicate whether he has established, within the department, any machinery to determine the impact of automation on employment in such factories in order that we may have an informed approach to the impact of automation on Australian industry?
