Mr HAROLD HOLT (HIGGINS, VICTORIA) - I had not been made aware of the outbreak or the spread of illness in the hostel to which the honorable member refers, but I shall, of course, have immediate inquiries made to find out the extent of the trouble and also the cause, if that can be ascertained. I know the interest which the honorable member, in common with other honorable members, has been taking in conditions at this hostel. He may be interested to know that during the Easter recess I made visits to several immigrant hostels. I was accompanied by the honorable member for Lalor when I visited the hostel at Williamstown and that near Maribyrnong. I did not go to the Preston hostel on that occasion. If I can get some information for the honorable member during the day, I will let him have it.
