Mr BLACKBURN (Bourke) . - I support the proposal of the honorable member for Parramatta (Sir Frederick Stewart). Clause 36 is taken from the New South Wales act, and pro vides that the pension may be paid to some person nominated by the Commissioner or Deputy Commissioner should the pensioner herself be insane. Nothing in the nature of clause 37 appears in the New South Wales act, and there is no need for it in this bill, either. It should be deleted, leaving clause 36 to cover the case of an insane widow, whether she be an inmate of a mental hospital or not

Clause agreed to.

Clauses 38 to 43 agreed to.

Clause 44 (Acquisition of property and receipt of income to be notified).
