Mr HAYLEN (PARKES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for Post-warReconstruction whether it is a fact that fishing, timber-getting, and saw-milling are not industries in respect of which loans can be granted to eligible persons under the Re-establishment and Employment Act? If so, will the Minister give consideration to having these industries included in the scope of the act for the benefit of the servicemen concerned?

Mr DEDMAN - The Repatriation Department deals with applications for loans to ex-servicemen. If the honorable member will submit the facts to me, I shall convey them to the Minister for Repatriation, and an answer will be supplied.
