Mr McEWEN (INDI, VICTORIA) - In view of the announcement from New Zealand that already £20,000,000 has been expended in that country in the settlement of exservicemen on the land, and that arrangements have been made for advances to each applicant up to a maximum amount of £6,250, and in view of the progress made in these matters in the small country of New Zealand, can the Minister for Post-war Reconstruction explain to the House why no progress whatever has been made in Australia in actually placing ex-servicemen on the land? When does he expect that some ex-members of the forces will be settled in rural areas?
