Mr HOLLOWAY (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) -In view of the many protests made against putting the National Health and Pensions Insurance Act into operation, will the Prime Minister discuss with the Cabinet the necessity for postponing the operation of the act, until the people have had an opportunity to vote upon the scheme? By way of explanation I draw the attention of the right honorable gentleman to the fact that I have received a letter from the town clerk of Williamstown as follows: -

I forward herewith copy of resolution carried at the last meeting of my council relative to the National Health and Pensions Insurance Act 1938- "That this council condemns the National Health and Pensions Insurance Act, demands its repeal, and the substitution of a non-contributory social insurancescheme."
