Senator MAUNSELL (QUEENSLAND) -Does the Minister representing the Minister for Labor and Immigration recall a statement by the Minister for Labor and Immigration on 18 August of this year that he thought most Government members would sooner resign than preside over unemployment of 250,000 people. I ask whether the Minister agrees with yesterday's forecast by Mr Hawke that 300,000 people may be out of work in January? If the number of unemployed does exceed 250,000 people, will the Minister resign or will he be transferred to another portfolio?

Senator BISHOP - The senator, to ask such a question, must be kidding.
