Sir ERIC HARRISON (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - -A similar question was asked a few days ago. I then acknowledged that the Government had been considering this matter, that on past occasions it had contributed to the relief of distress caused by disastrous floods in India, and that India in turn had contributed towards the relief of distress following the last disastrous flood in Australia. I shall confer with the Minister acting for the Minister for External Affairs, through whom no doubt requests have been made and inquiries have been instituted, to ascertain whether I can give a reply to the right honorable member, and whether the Government's decision can be expedited.
