Senator MACKLIN(10.56) —I was referring to clause 6, which deals with the three vessels which went to Vietnam between 1965 and 1973-the Sydney, the Boonaroo and the Jeparit. I thought that the Minister had referred to that clause in his speech. I apologise. I move:

(2) That the House of Representatives be requested to make the following amendment:

Sub-clause 6 (1), after paragraph (n), add the following new word and paragraph:

``; and (o) a person who has rendered continuous full-time service aboard a vessel while that vessel was engaged in supporting or supplying members of the Defence Force located in the Republic of Vietnam shall be taken to have been rendering operational service while the person was so rendering that continuous full-time service.''.
