Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister for Labour and National Service, upon notice:

(1)   What was the total male and female membership of trade unions in each of the States in each of the last 10 years for which figures are available.

(2)   What percentage of total employees did this membership represent in each State.

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

The following table, supplied by the Commonwealth Statistician, shows the total male and female membership figures for trade unions in each State for the years 1960 to 1970. The table also shows membership figures as a percentage of total wage and salary earners for the years 1966 to 1970. Comparable figures for years prior to 1966 are not available because employment estimates on the current basis are not available for periods prior to 1966.
