Senator RAE (New South Wales) . - I should like to know the meaning of paragraph 21 of this schedule, which reads -

Where under this schedule a right to compensation is suspended, no compensation shall be payable in respect of the period of suspension.

Does that mean to cover the case where a claimant has not proved his claim, but is waiting for further evidence? I could understand a case not being decided for lack of evidence, but if subsequently the claimant is able to prove his claim a good one. it seems to me only fair that he should receive payment of compensation from the time at which it would have fallen due if the claim had been proved when first submitted.
