Senator STEWART (QUEENSLAND) - Arising out of the answer of the Minister, I wish to ask whether, under any superannuation scheme which may be submitted to Parliament, the contributions of members of the Commonwealth Public Service, to whom it is intended that it shall apply, will be sufficient to defray the whole cost of such scheme, or whether the Commonwealth will be called upon to contribute a part of it?

Senator PEARCE - Speaking from memory, I think there were three distinct schemes submitted by Mr. Knibbs, the Government Statistician, to whom the matter had been referred by a previous Government. One of these schemes was a contributory one, the second was selfsupporting, and the third was a scheme the cost of which was to be covered by deductions from the salaries of public servants.
