Senator BESSELL (TASMANIA) - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Labor and Immigration. It relates to the unemployment position in the Launceston area of Tasmania. I ask: Does the Minister agree that the figures given last night by Senator Rae of between 1,300 and 1,400 as of last Friday more truly reflect the current situation than those quoted by the Prime Minister at yesterday afternoon's news conference, namely, 340 people?

Senator BISHOP -The question calls for a studied examination of the figures. I have heard 2 versions from groups which have analysed the figures. I think it would be better for me to be precise with regard to the honourable senator's question. I will ask the Minister for Labor and Immigration to supply an answer to the honourable senator's question.
