Mr WHITLAM - I believe that very many forms of expenditures in the public sector are inflationary and should be curtailed. It was for this reason that one of the early acts that the Government took was to appoint the Coombs task force to spring-clean the inherited inflationary expenditures of the Australian Government. As is known, a great number of the suggestions made by the Coombs task force were applied in the Budget.

I would only hope that the State governments, many of whose expenditures are the most inflationary in Australia, would have a similar spring cleaning.
