Mr Collard asked the Prime Minister, upon notice:

1.   How many full-blood Aboriginals are at present employed in Commonwealth departments in Western Australia?

2.   In which departments are they employed, and what is the nature of their employment?

Mr Harold Holt - The answer to the honourable member's questions is as follows:

No record is kept of the racial origin or racial admixture of persons employed by the Commonwealth. However, inquiries indicate that four full-blooded Aboriginals are employed by Commonwealth Departments in Western Australia, two of whom are linesmen in the Postmaster-General's' Department and two are groundsmen in the Department of Civil Aviation.
