Mr BRYSON (WILLS, VICTORIA) - In view of the statement by the Minister for Social Services that £27,000,000 allocated by the Government for loan money to exservicemen to buy houses that are already built has been expended, is the honorable gentleman willing to endeavour to obtain additional loan money to satisfy ex-service applicants or does he intend that those applicants shall wait until some time in the next financial year, when they may not be in a position to make the purchase of a heme?

Mr TOWNLEY - I point out to the honorable member for Wills that this House, of which he is a member, approved of the allocation of £27,000,000 this year. If he can suggest where additional money might come from in the form of taxation, I shall be pleased to consider his proposal.
