Mr J R FRASER - My question to the Prime Minister relates to the Queen Elizabeth Fund for Mothers and Babies and is addressed to him because of the interest he took in the proposal at the time of Her Majesty's coronation, some six years ago. Will the Prime Minister have inquiries made as to the delays which have occurred in bringing to finality plans for the construction in Canberra of a home for the care of mothers and babies, a project for which locally-raised funds equalled the Australian Capital Territory allocation from the general fund? In particular, will the Prime Minister inquire whether the efforts of the Canberra Mothercraft Society have met with either indifference or frustration from representatives of any of the Commonwealth departments concerned in the project?
