(1)   Have the salaries of members of the Commonwealth Police Force been raised to the level of salaries paid to members of the A.C.T. Police Force.

(2)   Did the Attorney-General promise that this would be done.

(3)   Have certain members of the Commonwealth Police Force been notified of reductions in their salaries.

(4)   If so, what are the reasons for these reductions.

Force, due regard being paid to the different bases for determining the salaries of the two Forces, the difference in the organisation patterns and the responsibilities involved.

Police Force have been increased and I have directed that the salaries of members of the Commonwealth Police Force be again reviewed.

(2)   Yes.

Mr Malcolm Fraser (WANNON, VICTORIA) asked the Treasurer, upon notice:

(1)   Has the Treasury ceased publication of a Quarterly Comment on Investment Accounts.

(2)   If so, is it because the recent figures indicate a downturn in economic growth.


Mr Crean (MELBOURNE PORTS, VICTORIA) (Treasurer) - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   and (2) The Treasury does not publish a Quarterly Comment on Investment Accounts' or, indeed, any document with a title along those lines. The Statistician publishes a document entitled Quarterly Estimates of National Income and Expenditure' but there has been no cessation of publication of that document.
