Senator VANSTONE (Minister for Family and Community Services and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Status of Women) (11:59 AM) —I am advised that you may be under a misunderstanding about the 2,000 existing now. There were actually 2,000 there at the time. So that will be a much smaller group now. In any event, the short answer to your question is: yes, the civilians and the widows who have remarried get paid outside the Veterans' Entitlements Act.


Senator Schacht —So that is the $133 million in the bill?


Senator VANSTONE —That was your question, Senator.
