Mr PARKER MOLONEY (HUME, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The Prime Minister made me a promise some time ago to bring the question of the extension of the moratorium before the State Premiers. I understand that the Premiers will be meeting here this weekend. Will the Prime Minister bring the matter before them, in view of the fact that there are a number of distressed people vitally concerned? I have letters from farmers in New South Wales who, if they could get an extension for a little while, say, until the wheat payment was made, might be able to carry on. Cannot something be done to bring this matter forcefully before the Premiers, in order to save many of these people from disaster? In the particular case of which I hold the particulars in my hand, the mortgagor has only until the first of next month to pay up or be turned out on the road.
