Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order ! The honorable member must proceed with the question.

Mr FRANCIS - Earlier in the present sessional period I asked the Minister for Defence to give me some details of the allocation of prize money amounting to £4,000,000 among members of the Royal Australian Navy and the Royal Australian Air Force who participated in the capture of enemy vessels during the recent world war. I have not yet received any information from the honorable gentleman on the subject, although more than three months have elapsed since I asked the question. Is the Minister able to tell me now who are eligible to participate in the prize money, and when and how applications should be made? Many persons who served in the armed forces during the war are still asking me for information but I am unable to inform them how the money can be obtained.
