Mr COLLINS (HUME, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I applied to the Department of Defence for clothing to be made available to the more important centres in the Hume electorate, and was advised that the Salvation Army was the approved distributing agency. When I applied to that organization for informationregarding the towns which had been supplied, I received a reply that clothing had been distributed in industrial centres only. I ask the Assistant Minister for Defence to inquire into this policy, and, if possible, instruct that clothing be sent to country centres also.

Mr FRANCIS - I shall be glad to inquire into the matter.
