Friday, 26 May 1939

Mr HUGHES - Pursuant to a promise made yesterday by the Prime Minister, in reply to a question without notice by the honorable member for Wannon (Mr. Scholfield), I lay on the table of the House a copy of a letter dated the 19th May, 1939, received by the Prime Minister from the Federal President, Returned Sailors and Soldiers Imperial League of Australia, setting out the views of the league on the suggestion that & select committee be appointed to consider an alleged anomaly in the Repatriation Act.

Regarding the question without notice asked by the honorable member for Balaclava (.Mr. White), in which reference was made to letters from branches of the league, including the Wentworth Falls, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, and Cresswell State Sanatorium branches, on the same subject, I desire to intimate that the Prime Minister has not received letters from the organizations mentioned. A letter has, however, been received by the Minister for Repatriation from the Wentworth Falls sub-branch, a copy of which is also being laid on the table.
