Mr HOLLOWAY (Melbourne PortsMinister for Social Services and Minister for Health) .- Evidently the committee is in favour of the proposal of the honorable member for Dalley (Mr. Rosevear), and I agree with the honorable member for Parramatta (Sir Frederick Stewart) that the proper place to insert it is in clause 14. The position could be met by inserting a new sub-clause 6 to the following effect: - "A pension shall not be granted to a widow, being a deserted wife, unless the widow has taken such action as the Commissioner, or the Deputy Commissioner, considers reasonable to obtain maintenance from her husband ".

Sir Frederick Stewart - That should meet the situation.

Amendment - by leave - withdrawn.
