Mr BRUCE (FLINDERS, VICTORIA) - The 31st of March was originally fixed as the definite date by which applications must be received. It was desired that the whole position should bo surveyed by the department in order to ascertain whether the concessions that were being applied for by necessitous bondholders were reasonable, and whether it would be possible to give a greater measure of assistance. "We have obtained a great deal of information from the applications already received, and I am glad to say that it will be possible . to increase slightly the assistance to be given to necessitous bondholders. A statement will be made in the course of the next few days as to the .nature of the additional concessions.
