Mr TOWNLEY (DENISON, TASMANIA) (Minister for Social Services) - As the honorable member is aware, the sum of £27,000,000 was allocated in this financial year for war service homes. All of the provisions that were made in the amending measures were understood to come within that allocation. There has been no alteration of policy whatever. So much of the amount for which provision was made hasalready been allocated that the pro gramme is approximately three and a half months ahead of schedule. Consequently, we are obliged to inform current and future applicants for one particular type of assistance that they must expect a substantial delay before their applications can be granted.
