Dr MALONEY (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

1.   If, in view of the Australian baby being the best immigrant for Australia, he will take the necessary steps to bring in a Bill providing that any landlord, landlady, or house and land agent who asks an applicant for a house if he has any children shall be punished for the first offence with one week's imprisonment ?

2.   Will he make provision to punish, with a similar penalty, any person who advertises in any paper that house seekers having children need not apply?

3.   If the Prime Minister finds it impossible to make this law for all Australia, will the Minister enter into communication with all the State Governments, with a view to remedying this matter ?
