Senator KEATING (TASMANIA) - I wish to ask the Minister of Defence, without notice, whether the Government will consider the desirableness of providing for the payment of military pensions, or of instituting some provision in connexion with the Military Forces analogous to that which obtains in respect of the Naval Forces of the Commonwealth? I wish, also, to ask whether he is aware that the absence of this provision militates against the introduction into our Military Forces of young men who would be a very desirable acquisition to that body?
