Mr DEDMAN - I saw the statement ; in fact, I cut it from the newspaper in order to be able to use the information in this House in reply. to some of the allegations which may be made about the land settlement of ex-service personnel. I have a copy of the statement here, and shall. read it to honorable members for their information. It is as follows: -

Mr. Millhouse,addressing members of the Liberal Women's Educational Association at the Liberal Club Hall in Adelaide on the 6th May, said that the Commonwealth Government was handling rehabilitation problems, well. Mr. iti 1 1 house went on to say t hat prospects were bright in relation to land settlement and the present programme was far in advance of that in 1018.

I also recall a statement made by Mr. Millhouse's predecessor, Sir Gilbert Dyett, when on a visit to Adelaide towards the end of 1944. He said -

I do not think that we have ever had a Government more sympathetically disposed to thu interests of px-servicemen than the present Government
