Senator McLEAY - As the Minister representing the Minister for the Army has pointed out, the Army pay of soldiers posted as missing is continued to their dependants for a period of three months. Alter that time, should, the missing soldier not be discovered, -his dependants receive repatriation benefits. Should the missing soldier subsequently be. found alive, an adjustment is. made between the two rates of payment. I understand that any next of kin who may be eligible for a pension under the Repatriation. Act would be paid, but I shall look into the matter and make sure that that is the procedure.
