Senator ARCHER —I direct my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Territories. I refer the Minister to reports that a house in Kambah, Australian Capital Territory, jointly owned by former Deputy Prime Minister Jim Cairns and Ms Junie Morosi is to be auctioned on 13 December and is expected to fetch upwards of $150,000. Is this the house which was built or purchased with assistance some $133,000 from the Commonwealth housing expansion program? Has the Government received notice of the impending sale and will the Government be acting to recover part or all of the funds that it granted under the program?

Senator GIETZELT —I have no information on that whatsoever, but since Senator Archer has requested some detailed information I will see whether I can get it before the conclusion of Question Time either today or tomorrow.
