Mr WARD - Has the attention of the Prime Ministerbeen drawn to an article in a Sydney weekly newspaper from which the following is an extract: -

It was shown that the children were taken from a bag shack at Gol Gol on the Murray River, near Mildura. They were living with their widowed mother in extreme poverty. The children subsequently appeared before the court yesterday and were committed to an institution in Sydney.

Will the Prime Minister have the circumstances of that case investigated with a view to meting out to that family, and to other families similarly situated, the same warm and generous consideration lately given to the widow and family of the late Prime Minister?

Mr. SPEAKER (Hon.G. J. Bell).Order ! The latter part of that question is not in order.
