Senator MISSEN (VICTORIA) - I address my question to the Minister representing the Treasurer. I refer, firstly, to the Treasurer's proposals dated March 1974 for a new superannuation scheme for Australian Government employees and, secondly, to the actuarial report on the scheme dated 18 June 1974. Did the Treasurer request interested persons and organisations to comment on the scheme not later than IS July 1974 so that the Government could take an early decision on his proposals? Is he aware that many officers of the Public Service have to make early decisions whether to take up additional units under the existing scheme and are embarrassed and suffering loss due to the delayed decision as to the implementation of the proposed new scheme? Can an early decision be expected?

Senator WRIEDT -It will be necessary for me to pass the question on to the Treasurer for an answer.
