Mr BURY (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Labour and National Service) - I think the honourable member somewhat exaggerates the situation. The first step that I particularly have in hand at the moment is increasing the number of commissioners to handle this work. As the honourable member knows, on Tuesday I announced in the House the appointment of one commissioner. 1 hope to add to the number as quickly as I can. He also will realise that there is a Bill before the House which, if approved, will facilitate the appointment of suitable commissioners. The honourable member referred to the' instruction of counsel. This is one of the matters that is- always- given consideration. As and when required, we do take the appropriate steps. But it ' is difficult to answer such a question in general terms. In practice, we act in response to specific cases. The honourable, member may be assured that I shall always do my best to facilitate the proper workings of the system.
