Mr CLEAVER (SWAN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I address my question to the Minister for Social Services. I refer to Treasury figures for the five months period ended 30th November relating to the Consolidated Revenue Fund and in particular to the expenditure of £38.8 million for child endowment. As this figure would appear to be well in excess of the pro rata calculation and as the estimate of £87 million for the whole year probably will be exceeded, I ask the Minister whether he can indicate to the House the main factors that might bring this about? Would it have a distinct relationship to the Government's decision to extend child endowment for students up to the age of 21 years?
