Senator TOWNLEY - 1 preface my question, which is directed to the Minister representing the Prime Minister, by reminding him that on the 27th of last month the Leader of the Government in the Senate advised me by letter that the cost of Commonwealth Government air travel within Australia during 1970-71 was just over $8m. In that letter the Minister indicated that the Public Service Board was examining the question of economy air travel for Government employees in the light of possible savings. I ask: Has the Public Service Board come to a decision concerning economy air travel for Government employees? If not, when may such a decision be expected?

Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN - I think the honourable senator will recognise that he was referring to correspondence between the Leader of the Government and himself which I have not had the opportunity of viewing. All I can say to the honourable senator is that I shall take up his question with the Prime Minister and obtain that information for him.
