Senator STORY (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Can the Minister of Defence say whether a decision has yet been arrived at regarding the payment of separation allowance to naval men, as well as to military men, while the war lasts?

Senator PEARCE - It has been decided to give a married allowance ofis. per diem to all men with less than five years' service, and to petty officers as well. Of course there is already a marriage allowance to those with more than five years' service, and the condition attached to it is that a petty officer or a man must make an allocation of the amount to his wife and family.
