Mr WHITLAM (Werriwa) (Prime Minister) - I ask leave to make a supplementary reply to a question which the honourable member for Wentworth (Mr Bury) asked me.


Mr SPEAKER -Is leave granted?


Mr Snedden - Leave will be granted to the Prime Minister at any time to answer questions.


Mr SPEAKER -Order! There can be no qualification in regard to the granting of leave. It is either granted or it is not. Is leave granted?

Mr WHITLAM - I table a paper giving additional information in answer to a question from the honourable member for Wentworth about superannuation for Commonwealth public servants. May I make the personal explanation that I was unjust to the honourable gentleman and he was unjust to himself because the last time there was an adjustment to superannuation payments was in October 1971 which was after he had ceased to be Treasurer.
