Mr SHEEHAN (Cook) . - I should like to have some information in regard to the health survey of contacts of tubercular soldiers. This year it is proposed to expend only £160 for this service. Last year an amount of £2,500 was provided, of which only £1,490 was expended. I desire to know if the balance of the money unexpended last year will be available for utilization this year, so that health survey of contacts with tubercular soldiers can be proceeded with. The children of affected soldiers are in danger of contracting the disease, but if medical attention be forthcoming in its early stages the disease may be arrested.
