Tuesday, 3 March 1970

Mr LUCHETTIpresented from certain citizens of New South Wales a petition showing that ex-servicewomen who enlisted during World War II have been discriminated against in the interpretation and administration of the War Service Homes Act 1918-1962; whilst on enlistment they were prepared to serve in any area; and exservicewomen who did not actually serve outside Australia are at present debarred from war service homes rights.

The petitioners pray that the House of Representatives will take immediate action to grant war service homes rights to all wartime ex-servicewomen.

Petition received and read.
