Mr BUCHANAN (McMillan) - in this paragraph we have the definition of a dependant in relation to a subsidised beneficiary. This clause allows for the dependant to be a spouse or a child over 16 and under 21 who is receiving full time education and is substantially dependent. All I want to say on this paragraph is that if it is all right for this subsidised health plan to have that definition of a dependant that definition should also apply to the contributors to friendly societies. Section 91 refers to 'Spouses and children under the age of 16'. I suggest it should be the same as for the subsidised beneficiaries.

Paragraph (a) agreed to.

Motion (by Mr Swartz) agreed to.

That paragraph - (b) be postponed.

Paragraph (c).
