Senator BONNER (QUEENSLAND) -Can the Minister representing the Prime Minister report on a probable date of receipt of the Remuneration Tribunal report by Mr Justice Campbell in relation to academic salaries? If a delay in receipt of the application of the report is anticipated, will consideration be given to an immediate interim increase of 25 per cent? Will steps be taken to ensure that there is no delay in making funds available to enable institutions to pay adjusted salaries?

Senator MURPHY -I would like to obtain the information necessary to give a full answer to the honourable senator's question. I do not appear to have it immediately available to me. Everyone is conscious of the need for adjustment of academic salaries. It is vital to any community that those people who are concerned with the advancement of knowledge and with the education of our young people who are to take leading parts in every walk of life should be adequately remunerated. I will endeavour to find out the exact position and let the honourable senator know.
