Senator DRURY (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Treasurer. I refer to the Defence Forces Retirement Benefits Board annual report for 1970-71, in which it is stated that the amortised investments of the Fund amount to more than $134m I ask the Minister: What happens to the return from this investment? Is it accumulated and reinvested? If so, as the investment comes from the contributions paid to the Fund by its members, will the Treasurer take steps to have this profit returned to the contributors in the form of higher payments?

Senator COTTON - I suggest that this question should pass through to the wicketkeeper. I ask the honourable senator to put it on notice for me.
