Me. GEORGE LAWSON.- I preface my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Social Services by stating that last week I was approached by a recently arrived British migrant, who asked whether a mother who gave birth to a child in Australia, but who had not the necessary twelve months residential qualification, would be entitled to the maternity allowance. As other honorable members may receive similar inquiries, I should be glad if the Minister would inform the House of any provision that has been made to meet such a circumstance.
