Mr HOLT (FAWKNER, VICTORIA) - In the last financial year, this Parliament voted the sum of £200,000 for the technical training of unemployed young men, of which £55,000 was apportioned to the State of Victoria, the Government of that State undertaking to provide a similar amount. From information supplied to me, I find that in that financial year, only £3,04S was expended by the Government of Victoria on this account, and that since then only £11,952 has been expended on the purpose for which the money was provided. Can the Treasurer indicate whether any attempt is made by his department to supervise the expenditure of this money, to see that it is devoted to the purpose for which it is intended?
