Senator BOLTON (Victoria) .- I should like to say a few words upon this subject. I am not so much concerned about the position of the individual as I am with the pioneer communities of returned soldiers settled on land in various parts of Victoria. I have had an opportunity recently of visiting some of these settlements, and I understand their position fairly well. In some places there is a railway siding which serves a settlement of 200 or 300 returned soldiers whose nearest point of telephonic communication is about 10 miles. This is a serious matter to them, especially if they want to get in touch with a doctor. There is an obligation on the Government to remove this disability at the' earliest possible date.
