SenatorFOLL. - Has the Minister for the Interior read the statement in the local press this morning by the Superintendent of the Canberra Community Hospital to the effect that, although application had been made on numerous occasions for the digging of slit trenches or other suitable air-raid shelters for hospital patients, he has been unable to get the work done! Is the Minister taking action to see that this work is done, and, if there is a shortage of labour for the work, will he give instructions for the organization of working bees, such as have been formed in other parts of Australia, in order to provide air-raid shelters atthe hospitals and schools in Canberra ?
