Mr BURY (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Labour and National Service) - Regrettably, the position has not changed since I answered the honourable members question a few days ago. One of the difficulties is, of course, that the salaries of the commissioners have not been adjusted for some considerable time. As the honourable member will appreciate, the salary level has a great deal to do with whether a job is satisfactory to applicants. 1 have this matter well in hand butI have not yet been able to complete the necessary action. I certainly wish to lose no time. Subject to a satisfactory solution to the matter of salary, and subject also to an Act being passed through this Parliament, I hope to proceed in the not too distant future.
