Sir JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Treasurer) - I believe that an examination is made in connexion with all such cases. That is the intention, in order that we should be satisfied that each proposal of the kind shall be fair to the returned soldier. The understanding is, fundamentally, that the returned soldier shall not pay more than the market price for anything he purchases with his war gratuity bond. If the honorable member can furnish me with instances in which this has not been carried out, I shall be glad to have them investigated. The sooner the intention of the Government in this regard is given effect to, the better.
