Sir Wilfrid Kent Hughes (CHISHOLM, VICTORIA) - I will be very brief. I thank the Minister for saying that he will have another look at this matter. I support the honourable member for Barton (Mr Reynolds) and the honourable member for McMillan (Mr Buchanan) in what they have said about it. The provision can be included as an amendment in another place. Spectacles are provided free in repatriation cases, and I cannot see any reason at all why the provision should not apply under these conditions in the case of the health scheme.

Question resolved in the negative.

Clause agreed to.

Clause 6 agreed to.

Proposed new clause 6a.
