Senator FITZGERALD (NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Leader of the Government in the- Senate. Ls the Minister aware that 20 of Australia's champion olympic swimmers are today staging a special carnival at Kure, Japan, for Japanese waifs? These children are sons and daughters pf members of Australian Occupational Forces and are subsidised largely from funds sent from Australia. Can the Minister advise what assistance is given by the Australian Government to help these unfortunate children? Further, would he raise the question once again with the Prime Minister or the appropriate Minister with a view to securing greater help for these children?
