Sir EARLE PAGE (COWPER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minis<;r for the Army to hasten arrangements for the payment of allowances to returned prisoners of war. I have before me one case which has already been referred to the Minister several times. It is that of a. prisoner of war,' a corporal, who was discharged from the forces with a private's pay, although he was assured that he would receive a corporal's pay. That was seven months ago, and, although he has written frequently to head-quarters on the subject, he has not received the extra money. As the difference amounts to 4s. a day over the whole period of his service, the matter is important to him.
