Senator MILLINER (QUEENSLAND) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Treasurer. Will the Treasurer give favourable consideration to making retrospective to 1st July 1972 the increased age, invalid and repatriation entitlements set out in the 1972 Budget? If the Treasurer will not accede to the request, will he make known the reasons which prevent such legislative action?

Senator COTTON - The question is an interesting one. I thought the Opposition was opposed to the Budget. I shall direct the question to the Treasurer.
