Senator A J McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Postmaster-General) . - in reply - Before I concluded my second-reading speech I did intend to refer to what seems an anomaly, in that members of the staff of the Repatriation Commission have no rights in respect of superannuation and furlough. The matter is, however, more complicated than it appears on the surface, particularly because many of the men concerned joined the staff of the commission at fairly advanced ages. I can assure the Senate that the matter is now under consideration, and that some time ago an actuary was consulted regarding it. The Minister for Repatriation hopes to submit proposals to Cabinet early in the new yeal- in regard to both superannuation and furlough rights for these men.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a third time.
