Mr Ward d asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

1.   Are there any constitutional difficulties which prevent or limit the provision of finance by the Commonwealth for the construction of homes for (a) ex-servicemen, (b) service personnel and (c) Commonwealth public servants?

2.   Is there any constitutional difficulty which limits the amount of money which the Common wealth may make available to the States for the housing needs of the Australian community generally?

3.   If these difficulties exist, will he state what they are?

Mr Menzies - No part of the question asked by the honorable member can be answered without expressing opinions on questions of law. It is not the practice to deal with, or express opinions on, matters of law in reply to questions.
