Mr NAIRN (Perth) (3:13 AM) .- I move -

That, in paragraph (i) of the proviso, after the word " years" the following words be inserted : - " or to any person who is totally and permanently disabled as the result of war service."

The purpose of the amendment is to grant free listening licences to permanently incapacitated soldiers. It is already provided that free licences be granted to blind persons and to schools. Totally and permanently incapacitated soldiers suffer perhaps a greater disability than do blind persons. Many of them are condemned to an invalid chair for the remainder of their lives, and they are entitled to this concession.
