Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! The honorable member for Grayndler will continue his speech.

Mr DALY - The honorable member for Eden-Monaro asks how they survived if they were committed to chastity.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! The honorable member should get back to the Bill.

Mr DALY - I will get back to the Bill but I thought that was an interesting question. On behalf of the Opposition I support the legislation. I thank the Minister for his tribute to the first Minister for Immigration and I add my own personal congratulations to the former Minister for introducing a Bill 16 years ago which no Government has sought to amend since that time. It has covered fully everything associated with the Templars and has been able to give to them not only a measure of security by the distribution of their assets after the war but at the same time has evidently been administered to the complete satisfaction of the Governments on both sides of the world, those associated with this matter and particularly the recipients of the payments themselves. I support the legislation on behalf of the Opposition.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time.
