Sir JOHN CRAMER (BENNELONG, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I preface my question to the Treasurer by directing his attention to the statement of Loan Fund expenditure at 28th February 1966, which discloses that for the past eight months the total of advances to the States for housing is lower by SI. 73 million than for the same period last year. What is the explanation for the apparent inability of the States to spend money available to them at a time when the economy and the housing industry need this expenditure and when the Commonwealth is considering making more money available for housing?
