Senator CAVANAGH - I desire to ask a question of the Minister representing the Minister for Repatriation. Is it a fact that, despite rapid inflation in recent years, war pensions have not been increased in the past 7 years? Will the Minister take some action to rectify that injustice to some 194,000 deserving recipients?

Senator GREENWOOD - Involved in the honourable senator's question are matters of policy. All questions as to rates of pension must be regarded as relating to matters of policy. I will convey the honourable senator's interest in this matter to the Minister for Repatriation.
