Senator BAUME -Will the Leader of the Government in the Senate inform the Senate on how many occasions, besides the case of Miss Junie Morosie he has supported the requests of employees for special consideration of priority for Government accommodation?

Senator MURPHY - As far as I can recall, not at all. I do not know whether that would extend back into the period when I was Leader of the Opposition in the Senate. For most of these purposes I think the Leader of the Opposition is treated on the same basis as a Minister in regard to staff. I cannot recall any other cases and Mr Bryant could not recall any either. His indication to me was that I had never used this category at all. I understand there are a number of categories and each Minister is allowed one. So far as I can recall there was never any earlier application and no support that I can recall. Of course, as I have indicated, this one has lapsed because of the person concerned moving from one position into another.
