Mr CONELAN (GRIFFITH, QUEENSLAND) - When a soldier is absent without leave, his pay is stopped, but the allowances payable to his dependants are continued. If a soldier applies for and is granted leave, not only his pay, but also the dependants' allowances cease for the period. Will the Minister for the Army rectify this anomaly without delay, so that men who do the right thing will not be penalized ?
