Of course, I do not know the exact figure. It is somewhat of a surprise that the matter has been practically decided by the government, as I infer it has been from the answer which the hon. minister makes. I suppose it is under consideration practically and that the matter will be dealt with in a way that will be considered fair to all parties. The other point to which I call attention is that, in some way or other, it has been possible that some men in connection with ' C ' Battery have got more pay than others. This is an unfortunate state of matters, because, although it has been paid to those dependent upon them by reason of their pay being assigned, the payment to all intents and purposes, was to themselves. They have got the benefit of it. If these men have received pay to a larger extent, treating it as if this Rhodesian pay were not a matter of bounty, or gift, something different from the Imperial pay, and others did not get the same treatment, there is going to be a felt hardship and wrong done to some of these men. Therefore, I sincerely hope that there will be some remedy found so that all many feel that they are treated fairly and generously in this matter. It is better to lose a few thousand dollars to enable these other men to get their pay according to what was really the intention than that there should be any cause of dissatisfaction on the part of any one.
