Senator Withers asked the Minister representing the Minister for Defence, upon notice:

(1)   How many Air Force personnel, other than officers, who left the Air Force in 1972 and 1973, were eligible for a pension under the Defence Forces Retirement Benefits Board Scheme.

(2)   How many Air Force personnel, other than officers, who re-engaged, would have been eligible for a pension under the Defence Forces Retirement Benefits Board Scheme if they had not re-engaged.


Senator Bishop - The answer to the honourable senator's question is as follows:

(1)   180 in 1972; 251 in 1973.

(2)   During the period January 1972 to December 1973 387 airmen with 20 or more years of service re-engaged for a further term of service. These airmen would have been eligible for a pension had they not re-engaged, and of course, will receive a pension when they leave the Air Force.
