Mr CURTIN - The practice has been for service pensions to be upon the same basis as invalidand old-age pensions. I understand thatthat practice will be maintained. With regard to the other aspects of pensions, I would remind the honorable member that the pension payable to soldiers for disabilities that they have suffered has no connexion with the cost of living, because it has no relation to the earning capacity of the pensioners.
