Mr MALCOLM FRASER (WANNON, VICTORIA) - Can the Treasurer tell the House why the Government, according to reports, rejected proposals put by the Victorian Premier for anti-inflation measures that would have involved both prices and incomes? Does the Treasurer agree with the eminently sensible view of the Victorian Premier that both sides of this question must be tackled?

Mr CREAN - A week before the Victorian election, the Prime Minister and I attended a meeting of Premiers, after which committees of officers were set up to bring along proposals. Those talks are continuing. There has been no rejection or acceptance of anybody's point of view. What there has been is a clarifying of issues and we are to meet with the Premiers again on 28 June.
