Mr ARCHDALE PARKHILL - Last night, on the motion for the adjournment, I explained the facts relating to the unemployed in the Federal Capital Territory. Many men settled themselves here in what were regarded as rest camps for travelling unemployed. They were not disturbed in their more or less permanent occupancy of those camps, and they received rations over and above those provided for by the regulations. It is not, however, proposed to continue supplying rations to these men while they occupy the camps to the exclusion of bona fide travelling unemployed who desire to use the buildings as a rest camp.
