Mr J R FRASER - Will the Minister for the Interior consider granting a benefit, by way of reduced rental, to tenants of government homes in Canberra who are ex-servicemen and the recipients of total and permanent incapacity pensions, where they have no other income and where there is no adult wage-earner in the household? In considering this question, will the Minister have regard to the sacrifice made by these men for their country, and will he also have regard to the fact that some ablebodied public servants, employees of the Commonwealth, receive very substantial benefit by way of rental reductions in the Territory?
