Mr FAIRHALL (PATERSON, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Interior) - I am sure that the honorable member will appreciate the magnitude of the problem which he poses for the department, and also the intricate nature of this matter of giving assistance to those who are required to live in hostels.

It is one of the unfortunate facts of life that as costs rise we must, if we are to keep the hostel accounts in reasonable condition, increase charges accordingly. However, I will have a look at the question that he raises and see whether there is any possibility of relief being afforded.

Suggest corrections
