Mr JAMES (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will the Deputy Prime Minister inform me whether it is a fact that under the war damage insurance scheme local governing authorities in the States have requested old-age pensioners to insure their properties immediately? If so, how does the Government expert them, out of their meagre pension, to find the money for the purpose of insuring their properties against war damage? Will the honorable gentleman endeavour to make arrangements to relieve pensioners of the obligation to make that contribution?
