Mr MARKS (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) -Asthe mover of the amendment on a previous occasion, I amglad that the Prime Ministerhas given effect to his promise to bring about what I desired by introducing an amending Bill. Isupport the contention of the honorable member for Illawarra (Mr. Hector Lamond). We must drawaline somewhere; but men who became incapacitated in camp to such an extent that they cannot now follow any occupation might well get the war gratuity. These men are deprived of the benefits of repatriation. I know of a man who was kicked bya horse immediately after enlistment, and was discharged. He does notenjoy any of the repatriation benefits.

Mr Hughes - I shallhave anamendment moved in the Senate to do what is desired.
