Senator O'BYRNE (TASMANIA) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for the Army. Over a month ago I raised in the Senate a matter relating to anomalies in the rates of pay of female members of the defence forces. The Minister then announced that a report had been submitted to the Minister for the Army and was at that time under review. I now ask: Has any decision been reached concerning the rates of pay for female members of the defence forces? What period will elapse before a statement is made on the raising of female rates from 59 per cent., as at present, to at least 75 per cent. of the male rates? Will the Minister give an assurance that action will be taken in this matter before the winter recess?
