Mr BARNARD (BASS, TASMANIA) (Minister for Repatriation) - Obviously I could not have in my mind complete details of this particular matter. I have not seen the statement in the Sunday Sun to which the honorable member referred ; in fact I have not read any of the daily newspapers to-day.

Mr Holt - That appears to be in conformity with the Prime Minister's policy.

Mr BARNARD - It is a matter of responsibility to the country in general and to ex-servicemen in particular, rather than a matter of policy. I shall examine the circumstances of the case and furnish the honorable member with full details as soon as possible. I stress that Australia is second to no other country, in the treatment that is afforded to exservicemen.
