Mr FORBES (BARKER, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - In directing a question to the Minister for Primary Industry J refer to the recent disastrous bush fires in the Mount Gambier and Port Elliot areas of my electorate. Is the Minister aware that at least 60 of the farmers who have been left completely destitute by the fire are soldier settlers of the last war? If so, can he say whether any special measures are planned by the Government to assist in their rehabilitation? I may add that the prompt and effective assistance given by the Government for the relief of the fire victims as a whole was very much appreciated in the areas concerned.
