Amendment of War Financial Regulations.

War Financial Regulations are amended as from 11th November, 1918, by—

(1) Inserting next after regulation 22 the following regulation:—

22a. Sustenance allowance at the rate of Three shillings per day for the period of demobilization leave approved by the Minister may be granted on discharge to members of the Australian Imperial Force and of the Naval and Military Expeditionary Force, provided, however, that such allowance shall not be payable to any member whose period of service from date of embarkation from Australia to the day prior to commencement of final leave on discharge does not exceed one year.

(2) Inserting next after regulation 43 the following regulation:—

43a. In order to obtain equality of treatment between soldiers who received demobilization leave upon the approved scale (with corresponding pay and allowances) before discharge from the Australian Imperial Force or the Naval and Military Expeditionary Force and those who did not, grants based upon the rates of military pay and the rates of sustenance allowance may be approved by the Minister for issue to persons who have been discharged from the Australian Imperial Force or the Naval and Military Expeditionary Force, or in the cases of former members of such forces who have died before receiving


such grants the Minister may approve of the issue of grants upon the same scale to the persons legally entitled to the military estates of such deceased members, provided that such persons either—

(a) stood to the deceased in the relationship of parent, wife, or child; or

(b) were actually dependent upon the deceased at the time of his death,

provided that in special cases in which, in the opinion of the Minister, the circumstances warrant it, payment may be made to such other persons and under such conditions as the Minister may think fit.
