Mr Hayden asked the Minister for Labour and National Service, upon notice:

(1)   How many job vacancies have been created by the Government's financial assistance to rural local authorities to reduce unemployment in each State for each month since the scheme came into operation.

(2)   How many of these vacancies have been Riled (a) once and (b) more than once where, for example, resignations have occurred.

(3)   Will he provide adjusted figures of the number of (a) registered unemployed and (b) job vacancies excluding the effects of this special assistance.

Mr Lynch - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   and (2) Detailed information of the type referred to in the questions is not compiled. However, statistics are available of the numbers employed under the Non-Metropolitan Unemployment Relief Scheme and these are shown below for each State and as at the end of each month since the introduction of the Scheme in December 1971.

(3)   lt is not possible to determine what the number of registered unemployed and job vacancies would have been in the absence of the special assistance provided to local Government authorities in non-metropolitan areas. Any adjustments to the figures would only yield hypothetical results.
