Mr ANTHONY (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to address to the Prime Minister a question relating to the position of the dependants of officials of the New Guinea and Papua administrations who have been compelled, asthe result of the Japanese invasion, to leave those territories. Many of the members of those administrations have joined the New Guinea Voluntary Defence Forces, and some of their dependants, who are at present in Australia, are practically destitute because of the insufficient provision for making payments to them. Will the Prime Minister take immediate action to place the payments to those dependants upon a satisfactory basis?
