Single Touch Payroll

In Parliament, Questions

The Hon. T.A. FRANKS (14:50): Supplementary: in the cited jobs growth rate, what was the difference in hours and what were the total hours?

The Hon. R.I. LUCAS (Treasurer) (14:50): The best indicator of that is the wages comparison, which was not released in the interim figure today but is going to be released next week. If the member is prepared to stay tuned, when we next reconvene, as a special request from the Hon. Ms Franks, I will provide an answer in relation to the total wages, which is a better indicator of total hours worked and which I always point out when those figures are available.
