Mr ALLAN FRASER (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Monaro) . - There are a number of points of great importance in this legislation which have not been clarified during the secondreading debate. In the first place, I directed attention this afternoon to the Minister's statement that the new benefits to be provided by this bill will not be payable for accommodation provided at a benevolent home, a convalescent home, a home for aged persons, a rest home, or a similar institution. The Minister interjected and informed me that he would, at a later stage, give the completely convincing reason why this should be so. Instead, the Minister has contradicted the statement that he made in his own second-reading speech.
