Mr Lynch asked the Minister for Labour, upon notice:

In which years since industrial statistics on man days lost were first compiled has the number of man days lost because of industrial disputes exceeded those lost during 1971.

Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I am informed that the answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Statistics of industrial disputes published since 1913 by the Commonwealth Statistician show that the number of working days lost during 1971 was exceeded in the years 1917, 1919, 1920 and 1929.
