Mr SCULLIN (Yarra) (6:39 AM) .Under this clause I understand that the Government proposes to give temporary employees an opportunity to pass the prescribed examination. Is that so? A number of returned soldiers who are temporary employees sat for the examination, but some failed to pass it because of war disabilities. Some of them have been in the Service for five or six years. Will the Government allow all of them the right to sit for the examination, and will returned soldiers who fail to pass be dealt with under the Repatriation Act?
