Mr HECTOR LAMOND (Illawarra) . - Cases of total incapacitation arising in camp are not to be treated in the same way as are the dependants of soldiers who died in camp. Obviously that is an oversight.

Mr Hughes - To the extent that their gratuity goes, theyare, and shall be, treated exactly the same.

Mr HECTOR LAMOND - According to the wording of the Bill, soldiers who were totally incapacitated will get a gratuity of1s. per day, whereas the dependants of those who died in camp will receive1s. 6d. per day. They should both receive the higher amount. I am certain that was the intention of the House, but it is not provided for in this measure.
