Mr UREN (REID, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Prime Minister. Has the Government decided to review the automatic consumer price index adjustments to pensions and the unemployment benefit embodied in the Social Services Amendment Act of 1976? If it has not, will the Prime Minister give his assurance that the CPI adjustments as currently enacted will continue?

Mr LYNCH - As the House is aware, the Parliament last year amended the Social Services Act to provide for the automatic indexation of pensions in accordance with upward movements in the consumer price index. The Government has not given any further consideration to the matter.
