Mr HAROLD HOLT - by leaveEarlier today the honorable member for Bonython asked a question about Commonwealth employees' compensation. I took the opportunity while question time was in progress to check on the present stage reached in this matter as I promised. I found that the Treasury has almost completed a review of all the proposals for amendment which have reached it, including a number of proposals received from the Opposition. I am told that this has been a very big job involving a great number and variety of proposals. It will not be possible to introduce any necessary amending legislation during the remainder of this session. However, I am told that I should be able to have adequate material before me to place this matter before Cabinet in good time for any necessary legislation in the autumn period next year.
