Mr HARRISON (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I askthe Minister for Works and Housing whether a recent land and tenancy regulation was designed to permit applications to be made by ex-servicemen for theoccupancy of unoccupied dwellings, and whether the drafting of the regulation has been such as to make it possible for applications to be lodged for the occupancy of houses that are being built under contract for private purchasers? If so, can the. Minister explain how the rights of these private purchasers may be protected? In view ofthe uncertainty that is felt by builders who are constructing houses for private sale, what will be the result on the building programme of the Government? In any event, will the Minister promise that the regulation will be further considered, with a view to overcoming any such anomalies that may exist?
