Senator FOLL - The Minister for Air has supplied the following answer : -

A pension may be paid under the Australian Soldiers' Repatriation Act, if an airman's disability is directly attributable to his employment as a member of the Royal Australian Air Force, provided that his incapacity is not due to his own fault or any breach of discipline. In othercases no payments are allowable unless the airman had been on active service outside Australia. If an airman after service outside Australia is discharged for medical reasons and is unemployed, he may apply to the Repatriation Commission for sustenance payments.
