Senator HENDRICKSON (Victoria) . - Earlier I asked the Minister a question regarding the resolution on the agenda of the Returned Servicemen's League. Could the Minister obtain the figures from his officers of how many First World War servicemen would now be entitled to hospitalisation?

Senator Anderson - Let me get this clear. What is it that the honorable senator requires?

Senator HENDRICKSON - The Minister has agreed with me that the resolution to which I referred is on the agenda of the Returned Servicemen's League for discussion at its conference. The Government does not agree to that resolution. How many ex-servicemen who served in the First World War and who are not now entitled to hospitalisation would be entitled to it after the passing of this Bill?

Senator Anderson - Over and above those who are entitled to it now under the Act?

Senator HENDRICKSON - Yes.
