Mr CHIFLEY - The honorable member will recall that the general principles of the War , Gratuity Act were determined by a parliamentary committee representative of all parties, because it was considered that such a body would devise the most satisfactory plan. The committee made certain recommendations with respect to the availability of the war gratuity for the "construction or purchase of a home. I am prepared to examine the honorable member's representations, but in view of the .close analysis of the subject and the time devoted to it by the committee,- 1 am not willing to make any recommendations to the Government without first seeking the advice of such members of the committee as I can consult.
