Mr McIVOR (GELLIBRAND, VICTORIA) - I direct a question to the Minister for Labour and National Service. Is he aware of the unrest that exists in the Commonwealth Public Service and, indeed, among salaried and professional and white collar workers generally throughout Australia due to the failure of this Government to give wage justice to these employees, and also due to the intervention by the Government in the basic wage case? Would the Minister agree that this unrest and hostility could lead to a deterioration in our Public Service institutions and cause considerable concern to the nation? Will the Minister give an assurance to the Mouse that he will take urgent action to rectify the position in order that our Public Service, adjudged to be the finest in the world, can be maintained?
