Mr HUGHES - I would invitethe honorable member's attention to the provision set out in the second schedule to the Australian SoldiersRepatriation Act 1920 in regard to this matter: -

The Commission may grant a pension not exceeding the special rate of pension (£8 per fortnight) to any member of the Forces who is suffering from tuberculosis, and who has been for at least six months an inmate of an establishment for persons so suffering, and has been discharged from that establishment: Provided that this paragraph shall not authorize the grant of a pension to such member of the Forces unless upon his discharge from the establishment the medical officer in charge of that establishment has certified that such discharge is not a menace to public health.
