Mr Whitlam m asked the Minister tor Labour and National Service, upon notice -

Will he table the last annual report which Australia made to the International Labour Office, pursuant to Article 22 of the Constitution of the International Labour Organization, on the measures which it has taken to give effect to the provisions of conventions to which it is a party?

Mr McMahon - The answer to the honorable member's question is as follows: -

The Australian Government does not submit a single annual report under Article 22, but submits separate annual reports in respect of each convention which Australia has ratified and which is in force. For the period ending 30th June, 1959, the Australian Government submitted 63 such reports. lt is not thought that the cost of reproducing all these reports would be justified. However, if the honorable member wishes to see a copy of any particular report { shall be happy to arrange it.
