Mr Whitlam asked the Treasurer, upon notice:

1.   When did he receive the Commonwealth Actuary's report on the Defence Forces Retirement Benefits Fund for the quinquennium ended 30 June 1964?

2.   When did he receive the commentary on it which he told me on 1 November 1967 (Hansard, page 2514) that he expected to be available about 2 or 3 months later?

3.   When does he now expect to table the Actuary's report and to announce the arrangements for the distribution of the surplus in the Fund among eligible pensioners and contributors?

Mr McMahon - The answers to the honourable member's questions are as follows:

1.   I received the Actuary's report in May 1967.

2.   I have not yet received the commentary.

3.   The Actuary's Report will be tabled as soon as possible after I and the Government have studied it in the light of the commentary.
