Tuesday, 10 November 1959

Mr CURTIN (KINGSFORD-SMITH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Prime Minister. Will the right honorable gentleman advise me whether he has received the telegram dated 4th November, 1959, in which I brought to his attention the disastrous floods which had occurred in the municipality of Randwick, in my electorate, and which resulted in heavy damage to roads, footpaths, property, businesses, &c? Is he aware of my appeal for an immediate grant of £100,000 to assist the Randwick Municipal Council in making good the enormous damage done? Will the Prime Minister advise me as to the reason for delay in answering my appeal, which was made in the interests of 45,000 taxpayers, and also with a view to assisting the Randwick Council in its feverish efforts at reconstruction?
