Mr Scholes asked the Minister for Employment and Youth Affairs, upon notice, on 9 October 1979:

(1)   Has he or his Department assessed the effect of changes in the location of certain defence establishments recently announced by the Minister for Defence in respect to installations at: (a) Marrangaroo, NSW; (b) Ettamogah, NSW; (c) Penrith, NSW; (d) Gladstone, SA; (e) Springhill, WA and (f) Maccrossan, Qld.

(2)   What alternative employment opportunities exist in each area.

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

(1)   No.

(2)   Employment prospects vary considerably according to age and occupation of the persons involved. It is not known at this time how many people will actually be displaced as a result of the changes, nor their categories of employment. For persons unable to be redeployed, normal Public Service redundancy provisions will apply.
