Mr McIVOR (GELLIBRAND, VICTORIA) - My question is addressed to the Prime Minister. Further to a previous question I asked of him relating to inspectors employed in Commonwealth Government defence departments, 1 now ask: Is the Prime Minister aware that the Inspectorial Grades Review Committee completed its investigations early in October 1971? Can the Prime Minister inform the House of the reasons for delaying the implementation of this review? Does the Prime Minister realise that the 7 months delay has caused, and is causing, considerable unrest among these men who are suffering a considerable loss of salary due to this delay?

Mr McMAHON (LOWE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Prime Minister) - I know that I have already answered a question and written to the honourable gentleman in regard to this problem. I think that the report of the inspectorial committee is well known to my Department and to myself. As soon as question time is over I will communicate with the Chairman of the Public Service Board and will see that a second letter is written to the honourable gentleman.
