Mr POYNTON - The Commissioner has supplied the following answers : -

1.   Apparently not, as 893 applications to the 3rd May had been received for advances under the War Service Homes Act.

2.   Under the State Housing Scheme applicants receiving a salary of over £300 per annum are not eligible for an advance. Under the War Service Homes Act advances are made irrespective of the salary received by the applicant. The information desired by the honorable member could not bo supplied without interrogatingeach applicant, but it is reasonable to assume that there are many returned soldiers in South Australia receiving a salary of over £300 per annum who would be ineligible under the State Housing Scheme.

3.   Yes, if the applications are to be dealt with without delay.

4.   To the 3rd May in South Australia 234 homes had been allotted to applicants, and, in addition, 26 were in course of construction, 75 contracts had been let, and tenders had been called for 24 others.

5.   See answer to No. 1.
