Mr GROOM (DARLING DOWNS, QUEENSLAND) - I would like to ask the Assistant Minister of Defence whether he has given consideration to a complaint that, in case of death, the payments to the children of widowers who have gone to the front is only very small. My attention has been drawn to the fact that a widow left behind receives an allowance which gives some compensation to the family as a whole, but in the case' of a widower's family the sum payable is exceedingly small.

Mr JENSEN - That aspect of the case has nott been considered.
