Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) - I move -

That after paragraph a the following paragraph be inserted : - " Employment or non-employment."

In the householders' schedule, which I sup-, pose the Government will adopt, provision will be made for a statement as to whether the householder or those in the house on the day when the census is taken are in employment or are not employed. If this direction is given to the Statistician, I believe we shall have statistics compiled which will afford a very valuable indication as to the industrial state of the Commonwealth on a certain date.
