Mr RODGERS (WANNON, VICTORIA) - As members of the Australian Imperial Force, all those soldiers are eligible for participation in the benefits of the War Service Homes Act. Provision has been made outside the Act for temporary treatment in institutions, such as hostels. While soldiers remain inmates of those institutions, they are not eligible; but if, in the opinion of the Commissioner and the soldier himself, it would be more effective to provide a home, that may be done. No disability is placed upon the individual soldier, but each case is considered on its merits.
