Mr JAMES asked the Minister for Home Affairs, upon notice -

1.   What are the necessary qualifications for the unemployed to be recognized as local residents of the Federal Capital Territory for the purpose of receiving food relief?

2.   Is it a fact that the unemployed in No. 4 Camp are not only comprised of residents of New South Wales but of every State in the Commonwealth, and also of immigrants from the United Kingdom; if so, why does the Government treat their maintenance as an obligation of the New South Wales Government?

3.   Was it stated in this House by the previous Government that out of the recent unemployment relief grant every unemployed person would receive not less than a fortnight's employment for Christmas; if so, why did some of the unemployed of Canberra only receive one week's work?

4.   In view of the approaching winter, will the Government permit the men at present in the unemployed camp to remain on the same conditions as prevailed under the previous Government?
