Mr CHIFLEY - The position is being continuously reviewed, and some time ago a comprehensive survey of buildings and accommodation . was made, under the direction of the Minister for the Interior, by Mr. "Westhoven, previously Commonwealth Public Service Arbitrator, a man well-known to many honorable members, and well experienced in matters of office accommodation and organization.' His survey covered three States,- Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales. Much accommodation has been made available as a result of that survey, and of the reviews made from time to time under the direction of the Minister for the Interior. I am aware of the great difficulties that arise from the shortage of accommodation, particularly in Sydney and Melbourne. I assure the honorable member that the matter is constantly under review and that everything possible is being done.
