Mr SPOONER (ROBERTSON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct a question to the Treasurer with relation to the fact that in towns such as Orange, Bathurst, Lithgow, Windsor and Maitland the presence of military or Air Force establishments is causing such a shortage of dwelling houses that the Government will be obliged, either now . or very soon, to undertake heavy expenditure in providing housing accommodation. Will the Treasurer confer with the Building Advisory Committee of the Capital Issues Advisory Board with a view to relaxing the application of the committee's regulations in order to allow people who own houses to convert them into flats, and thereby provide the housing accommodation that otherwise the Government will have to provide at its own ' expense ?
