Mr BIRD (BATMAN, VICTORIA) - My question is directed to the Treasurer. Has the attention of the right honourable gentleman been directed to the remarks of the Victorian Liberal Minister for Housing, Mr. Petty, that he was sick and tired of being presented with statistics designed to prove that Australian housing requirements were being catered for adequately, and that he wished some of the people who used such statistics would come down from their ivory castles and learn at first hand of the hardship and heartbreak being experienced by home-seekers? Were Mr. Petty's views taken into consideration when Cabinet recently discussed the present housing position?
