Mr JAMES (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for the Interior whether his Department has leased many of its properties, which are non-rateable, to private enterprise. I refer to drill halls in the Hunter and Newcastle divisions. Does he think it fit that the lessees should have that advantage over co-operative societies and other private enterprises? Does the Commonwealth Bank make ex gratia payments equivalent to the rates to local governing bodies? Will the Department of the Interior make similar payments to local governing authorities?
