Mr SINCLAIR (NEW ENGLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Social Services) - The Federal housekeeper grants were instituted by this Government to encourage State Governments t o enter this particular field of welfare.

However, this is an area within which the State Governments themselves exercise primary responsibility. I will look into the honorable member's suggestion and, during the deliberations on the Budget, if it is thought fit, perhaps consider the matter further.
