Mr McMAHON - It is not the policy to increase the tariffs at Commonwealth hostels commensurately with changes in the basic wage. All sorts of considerations are taken into account when an increase is contemplated. However, as the substance of the question is whether there is likely to be a rise of £1 in the tariffs, I must say that I have not heard of the proposal. I should be surprised if such a proposal had got as far as the honorable member suggests without my being consulted. I will have inquiries made and will let the honorable member know.
