Mr CLYDE CAMERON (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) . - The thing that surprises me, as a member of the Opposition, is that although we are dealing with pensions for returned servicemen and in spite of the fact that Liberal members of this Parliament have a lot to say at election time about how their hearts bleed for the returned servicemen, only eleven of them are in the House tonight. Just imagine; only eleven members of the Liberal party are taking sufficient interest in this debate to come and listen to the remarks that are being made by the members of the Opposition! [Quorum formed.] We nearly did not get a quorum. In fact we have a quorum now only because nearly twenty members are present on the Labour side. The people of Australia, especially the returned servicemen, will know from these remarks how much interest the returned servicemen whom they send into this Parliament have in their welfare.
