Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Repatriation) . - I am afraid that I cannot supply the information asked for, but I sent for it as soon as the honorable senator referred to the matter. I can only tell him that, following the decision of the High Court, which was the starting point for these claims, they did come in, and many of them have been met. It seems to me that it is natural to assume that some should be pending, but it is impossible to say whether any more will be presented. I ask the honorable senator to permit the vote to pass now, and at a later stage I will give him the information for which he asks, if, in the meantime, I am able to obtain it from my colleague, the Minister for Trade and Customs (Mr. Greene).
