INQUIRY INTO SOLDIER SETTLERS' LIABILITIES Mr. Macgillivray's Question in House [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 12 November 1942
INQUIRY INTO SOLDIER SETTLERS' LIABILITIES Mr. Macgillivray's Question in House In the House of Assembly Mr. W. Macgillivray (Chaffey) asked the fol- lowing question- of the Minister for Irrigation (Hon. R. J. Rudall): A considerable time ago the Min- ister of Irrigation set up a depart- &nbsp; mental inquiry into the question of Murray River soldier settlers' liabili- ties. The inquiry has been completed in a number of cases and settlers have been anxiously awaiting the result of it. The last time I was up river one settler told me he was getting downhearted and dispirited because he did not know what was likely to happen to him. He said he was living on approximately £3 a week, but had to pay wages to employees amounting to £5 a week. He said it would be fairer to him, in the event of the department not going on with the inquiry, to let him come to town, get a job in munitions work, and so re-establish himself in some way be- fore the war ends. The reason the Minister gave...

WITH THE BRITISH BOMBER COMMAND Sergeant Air Gunner Lindsay Lawton Sgt. Air-Gunner Lindsay Law- ton of Renmark has taken &nbsp; part in a number of the great- &nbsp; est bombing raids over Germany since he has been attached to the British bomber command. He was in the 1000 bomber raids which devastated the city of Cologne and Essen together with other large formations of giant bombers sent across the channel since really heavy raiding commenced. His "kite" is one of the Lancaster Squad- ron, and pals of his are Hat and Spafford, both decorated recently for gallantry in these raids. On one occasion in which he had been detailed for duty in a 1,000 bomber raid, he re- ceived a cable with very sad news from his family. The adjutant was very decent to him about it, he said. He happened to be on that particular night detailed for one of the 1000 bomber stunts. The adjutant had him taken off the programme, al- &nbsp; though he would Sgt. Lindsay Lawton have preferr...
