Mr FROST (FRANKLIN, TASMANIA) (Minister for Repatriation) - Yesterday, the honorable member handed to me the letter which he received from this young .man in Brisbane. and I immediately asked my department to make inquiries. I expect to receive a reply to-day. I agree with the honorable member that this case appears to be very serious, but my department will do everything possible to assist this unfortunate young man. He was doubtless sent to tie hospital in his own interests, but as the honorable member stated, the letter which he wrote was that of a sane person. From a perusal of it, I' could hardly believe that lie was suffering from a mental disorder. However, the department will do everything possible in his interests, and as soon as I receive the reply, I shall inform the honorable member.
