Mr E JAMES HARRISON (BLAXLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Is the

Minister for Labour and National Service aware that unions now lodging applications for award variations with the Commonwealth Conciliation and Arbitration Commission with respect to work value matters cannot be given any idea how long it will be before such cases will be listed even for hearing? Is the Minister aware further that there seems to be no chance of the majority of the applications by unions for work value hearings being commenced, much less determined, before the full Commission commences its further hearing in the economic case in August of this year? I ask the Minister: How long will it be before the Government takes some action to appoint additional conciliation commissioners to reduce this backlog of work?
