Mr CROSS (BRISBANE. QLD) - Can the Prime Minister explain why it took until 18th November to approve increased salaries for locally engaged staff of the Australian High Commission in the United Kingdom when the comparable increases for the British Civil Service took effect from 1st January 1971? Does the Prime Minister realise' the dissatisfaction that this long delay has caused among the staff of the High Commission? Will he undertake to review the procedures in order that delays of this length may not occur in the future?

Mr McMAHON (LOWE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Prime Minister) - I will have a look at the question raised by the honourable gentleman as soon as I can.
