Mr HOWSON (FAWKNER, VICTORIA) (Minister Assisting the Treasurer) - I have been informed that work on the Tindal airstrip will be completed on schedule, towards the end of this year. There has been some delay in the delivery of houses. I am informed that 62 houses will be finished within the next two weeks; that about 40 of these have been erected except for connection of facilities, which will be completed by Easter; that the remaining 40 will be available at the end of the second week in June; and that 12 were damaged in transit from the manufacturer. These 12 are being replaced by the manufacturer. The delays could not be anticipated when the order was placed. So, although there have been delays, I am pretty certain that everything is now being done to get the order completed soon. If the honorable member requires any other details about this matter I will be pleased to give them to him.
