Mr SPEAKER -Order! I remind the honourable member that debate on the third reading is limited to the schedules of the Bill and the Bill. He should not seek to make a second reading speech.

Mr Les Johnson (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I do not want to repeat what was said in the debate on the second reading. I simply take the opportunity to impress upon the Treasurer that this is a matter of great significance. I hope that some means will be found to furnish replies to the queries I have raised. I referred to ex-servicemen who, under the provisions of this legislation, are deprived of their pensions if they earn more than one-third of the amount they earned at the time of their retirement. I urge the Treasurer to treat this matter with the importance which most honourable members consider it deserves.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a third time.
