Senator BREEN (Victoria) . - I have a question to ask of the Minister for Customs and Excise concerning proposed new subsection (4.) in clause 7 of the Bill which states -

A pension under this section shall not be granted to a child of a member of the Forces if the grant would result in pensions under this section being payable to more than four children of the member.

If payments of 15s. for the eldest child and 2s. 6d. a week for three other children were made, this would total £58 10s. a year. Can the Minister explain why, if there were a family of six children, the two younger children would be barred from any pension at all?
