Mr ROBERTON (RIVERINA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Social Services) - Consistent with Government policy the Department of Social Services has engaged in decentralization in all States of the Commonwealth. To that end Victoria has been divided into regions, and regional offices have been established in each region. A region, of course, must qualify by the amount of business and the number of people within the region warranting the establishment of a regional office. If the honorable member for Mallee will do whatever lies within his power to increase the population of the locality that he mentions, consideration will be given to his request.
