Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (Western Australia) (Minister for Air) - I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

With the concurrence of honourable senators I incorporate the second reading speech in Hansard. (The document read as follows) -

This Bill amends the definition of 'child' in the principal Act in order to give effect to the extension of eligibility for war pensions to student children between the ages of 16 and 21. The amendment is consequential upon the amendment by the Repatriation Bill (No. 2) 1972 of the definition of child' in the Repatriation Act. I commend the Bill to the Senate.

Debate (on motion by Senator Willesee) adjourned.
