Mr Cadman asked the Minister for Home Affairs, upon notice, on 21 April 1980:

(1)   How many officers of his Department are assigned to respond to and prepare evidence for (a) Parliamentary committees, (b) the Commonwealth Ombudsman, and (c) the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.

Mr Ellicott - I am informed that the answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:
