Mr HULME (PETRIE, QUEENSLAND) (Postmaster-General) - I am sure the honourable member appreciates that under the Public Service Act employees in most spheres of the Commonwealth must be permanent public servants, if such people are available. People who are taken on in a temporary capacity understand quite clearly the temporary nature of their employment. It may last for a short period or it may last for a long period. But if, in fact, a great number of people qualify by the usual examination to become permanent public servants, then they must, under the Act, be appointed to replace temporary public servants. It i:. the responsibility of my colleague the Minister for Labour and National Service, through the Commonwealth Employment Service to assist in finding employment for people who are displaced.
