Sir GARFIELD BARWICK (Parramatta) (Attorney-General) .- The precise amount has not been set. Honorable members can rest assured that the marriage guidance organizations will not be dealt with in a niggardly fashion. It will be necessary to examine their needs, in co-operation with them, and to determine what activities require support. The honorable member for Lang (Mr. Stewart) can rest assured that these organizations will have my very sympathetic consideration. I have already talked to such persons as the Reverend Coughlan in an endeavour to find out what their needs are so that I will know precisely what ought to be done.
