Senator PEARCE (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Defence) - There have been a number of complaints from persons to whom money was allotted of not having received it. In most of the cases which have been investigated it has been found that the non-payment is due to the want of a sufficient address, or of a proper identification of the person making the order. The complaints are being investigated, and it is believed that shortly the matter will be put on a better footing.

Senator BAKHAP - May I ask the Minister if the cases I brought under his notice come within the category he has mentioned ? He will remember that I provided him with extracts from communications bearing on this subject.

Senator PEARCE - In regard to the particular cases which the honorable senator brought under my notice, I have called for a report. I have not yet received the report, and I was not referring to those cases in the answer I gave.
