Mr PEACOCK (KOOYONG, VICTORIA) (Minister Assisting the Prime Minister) - The position as stated by the honourable member is largely correct and is in accord with the previous practice of transporting servicemen on return at Government expense by rail to Western Australia. The time taken, of course, is not considered as time spent on leave and the period of time engendered by the travel is added to the time allowed for leave. The honourable member asked me specifically whether I will discuss this matter with the Treasurer. I cannot answer for the Treasurer's opinion but I would be pleased to discuss the matter with him.
