Senator RYAN (Minister for Education)(9.30) —Student dependants of veteran pensioners or of blind pensioners, or other students in that category, will be in the same position as Austudy students. They will be recompensed. The treatment of disability pensioners who have had dual eligibility and who wish to undertake higher education studies is currently a matter for discussion between the Minister for Finance (Senator Walsh) and the Minister for Veterans' Affairs (Senator Gietzelt). We do not yet have an outcome with regard to that category.
