Mr ROSEVEAR - What scale of relief is granted to men and women who have been displaced and for whom no employment can be found? To what department must they apply for assistance? Has a questionnaire been printed for that purpose and if so, where are the forms obtainable?

Mr DEDMAN - The payments are made by the Department of Social Services, but I am not aware whether a questionnaire has been printed. The scale of relief, which depends upon the circumstances of the applicant, is adequate, and exceeds the rates paid to soldiers. In the circumstances, the individuals concerned have little cause for complaint. They are being adequately cared for.
