Mr JAMES - In view of the statement of the Treasurer that the provision of funds for local governing bodies for the construction of public works is outside the functions of the Commonwealth Government, and that such funds are allocated only by the Commonwealth Bank Board, will the Minister for Health oblige honorable members by informing them (1) by what means he secured the sum of £40,000 for the Warrnambool sewerage scheme; (2) as many other towns are equally in need of similar consideration, will he indicate the best method by which private members can approach our financial masters, the Board of Directors of the Commonwealth Bank?
