Senator WEDGWOOD (Victoria) . - I wish to refer again to the housekeeper service, not to comment on the service itself but to ask for an explanation as to why one of these appropriations is under the proposed expenditure for the ordinary annual services of the Government and the other is not. If I understood the Minister rightly, he said that in the case of the housekeeper service for Queensland the grant was made to the Country Women's Association. Therefore, I fail to appreciate why an appropriation of that kind could come under the proposed expenditure for the ordinary annual services of the Government. I do understand the reason for the appropriation of £11,500 which was paid to the State being included in the proposed expenditure for other than the ordinary annual services, but it is beyond my comprehension how a payment to the Country Women's Association for a purpose of this kind could ever have been included in this appropriation.
