Mr ROBERTON (RIVERINA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Social Services) - I have pleasure in informing the honorable member that there is no need for a departmental inquiry into the question that he has raised. All the information is available to the department. The wife's allowance is reviewed every year, as are the rates of all other social service benefits, which are increased from time to time consistent with the financial capacity of the community to pay for them. That process will continue, and the wife's allowance will be reviewed again at the appropriate time.
