Mr POYNTON - These questions should have been addressed to the Minister for Repatriation. I have been furnished with the following answers: -

1.   The Department of Repatriation is negotiating with the State Government of Western Australia for the provision of facilities at the Perth public hospital for discharged soldiers who may from time to time require in-patient treatment. 2 and 3. As the accommodation proposed is only for returned soldiers, the convenience of the men can best be met by the selection of Perth. It is not only the largest centre of population in Western Australia, but, owing to its railway facilities, is the most readily accessible spot from country areas. This is regarded as a most important factor, as it eliminates the necessity for further travelling and obviates delay in according a patient the requisite medical attention.
