Sir EARLE PAGE (COWPER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to ask the Treasurer a question without notice. Can he inform the House whether the contractual allocations that have been made for the building of houses are intact, and whether the fact that some 45 timber mills have had to close in the area between the Hunter River and the Queensland border - and I think that many other timber mills have had to close in other parts of New South Wales - is due to some other interference with the credit available for housing generally? Will the right honorable gentleman ascertain the facts with regard to these matters, and, if possible, ensure that the men thrown out of work by the closing of these mills will be re-employed?
