Mr BLACKBURN asked the Treasurer, upon notice -

1.   Has the Superannuation Board recommended an amendment of section 27 of the Superannuation Act so as to allow a contributor who has resigned after having attained the age of 60 years but with less than twenty years' permanent service to receive a refund of his contributions to the Superannuation Fund?

2.   Will the Government give early consideration to the propriety of making this amendment?

Mr Chifley - This matter, together with other Superannuation Fund matters, is at present under consideration.

Mr Wilson asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

In view of the fact that former members of the Public Service who are now members of the Australian Imperial Force are having their superannuation payments maintained by the Government, will he undertake on behalf of the Government to extend the same concession to members of the Volunteer Defence Corps and the Australian Military Forces who are on active service and who were formerly members of the Public Service?

Mr.Curtin. - This question has already been the subject of consultation between the Treasurer and myself. A decision in the matter will be announced assoon as possible.
