Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (Western Australia) (Minister for Air) - I shall give a breakdown of the extra appropriation of $7.71 3m that is sought for the Permanent Air Force in relation to the item concerning pay and allowances in the nature of pay. An extra expenditure of $9. 116m has been incurred as a result of increases which have been granted to officers of the Commonwealth Public Service, including the 6 per cent increase that was granted earlier this year. An increased provision is required also for pay in lieu of long service leave and recreation leave. One cannot always be sure how many people are going to accept pay in lieu for either or both of those leave periods.
