Mr WHITLAM - I ask the Prime Minister a question. Last week, the right honourable gentleman was asked 2 questions about parliamentary salaries. On Monday of this week I wrote to him and yesterday the Government and Opposition Parties discussed the matter. I ask him whether the Government has discussed the matter and whether he is in a position to announce a decision upon it.


Mr McMAHON - The facts in the statement of the honourable gentleman are correct. The Government has made a decision. I will ask the Leader of the Opposition for leave to make a statement on parliamentary and ministerial salaries and allowances immediately after question time this morning.
