The CHAIRMAN (Senator Sampson - Proposed new section 45ad to which SenatorCollings proposes to add another paragraph reads -

Subject to this act. the commission or a board may grant a service pension not exceeding 36s. per fortnight to a member of the forces who served in a theatre of war and who-

(a)   in the case of a man - has reached the age of60 years ;

(   b )in the case of a woman - has reached the age of 55 years.

The honorable senator proposes to add -

(c)   in the case of a widow of a deceased member whose death was due to pulmonary tuberculosis.

Thatproposed new section deals with a member of the forces, and as a widow is not a member of the forces I cannot see how the proposed amendment can be accepted, although it might be inserted in another part of the bill.

Senator Collings -Can the Chairman indicate where the amendment should be inserted?
