Mr HOLT (FAWKNER, VICTORIA) - Referring to the announcement by the Government that it proposed to continue the present grant to the National Fitness Council for a period of five years at the existing rate, I ask the Prime Minister whether it is not a fact that the Social Security Committee recommended a. substantial increase of the grant after having investigated the work of the council in the various States?' Is it a fact that, despite the increase of costs that has taken place throughout the community generally, the grant is being maintained at the rate at which it was fixed originally in respect of the foundation work of the National Fitness Movement? Will this not have the effect of reducing, rather than maintaining, the work now being done by the council ?
