Mr JAMES (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I have received the following letter from Mr. L. H. Story, of Victoria Barracks, Paddington : -

I have to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated 2nd March, 1932, relative to the supply of a tent to Mr. lj. McCurry of Swansea, and in reply have to advise that, while the names of several charitable organizations for the distribution of unserviceable clothing, &c, have been submitted, their activities are confined to the metropolitan area. The question of the policy to be adopted in regard to distribution to country centres has been referred to Army Head-quarters for direction.

In view of the fact that the distribution of unserviceable clothing is confined to the metropolitan area, what does the Prime Minister intend to do in respect of the provision of clothing and tents for unfortunate people in the country areas who have been evicted from their homes ?
