Mr CONELAN (Griffith) . - I compliment the Minister for Social Services (Mr. Holloway) upon the introduction of this measure.

Mr Archie Cameron - Why stonewall the bill?

Mr CONELAN - I do not wish to stone-wall. My duty as Government Whip is to endeavour to accelerate the passage of legislation. I merely seek an assurance from the Minister that cost of living variations will be taken into account in connexion with these pensions as will be the case in future with invalid and old-age pensions.

Mr Holloway - I give the honorable member that assurance.

Mr CONELAN - I thank the Minister. That is the only reason why I rose to speak.
