Mr CHIFLEY (MACQUARIE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Prime Minister) - I made a statement in this House recently regarding the utilization of war gratuities for home building. The honorable member for' Darwin (Dame Enid Lyons) has introduced another aspect which I do not think was given special consideration by the parliamentary committee which submitted recommendations to the Parliament regarding the use of gratuity money. Except for special reasons, I do not pro- pose to depart from the recommendations of that committee, which the Government adopted in toto, and certainly no variation will be made until after I have asked the committee to examine the matter again. The honorable member's suggestion will be considered and, if thought necessary, it will be referred to r.he committee.
