Mr SWARTZ (DARLING DOWNS, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for Repatriation) - I did see a statement to this effect in a metropolitan newspaper yesterday. I wish that the newspaper concerned would check up on the facts before publishing statements of this nature which can cause much concern to all Australian servicemen. The report was entirely untrue. Australian servicemen in these areas are covered for repatriation benefits under the Repatriation (Special Overseas Service) Act, provided that the servicemen are on special service.
