Mr HANSEN (WIDE BAY, QUEENSLAND) - I ask the Treasurer a question. Has the Government considered the introduction, with the co-operation of the States, of measures - temporary, if need be - to discourage price increases associated with the changeover to decimal currency? In view of the publicity given to price increases, could the Decimal Currency Board give similar publicity to any price reduction resulting from the conversion to decimals? Is the prime reason why the Decimal Currency Board is not doing this that there are few, if any, instances of articles being cheaper when priced in dollars and cents?
