Mr WIGHT (LILLEY, QUEENSLAND) - I ask the Treasurer whether the Commonwealth Government made funds available to the Queensland

Government as the result of an application for assistance in providing relief after a cyclone hit the Townsville area eighteen or twenty months ago. If funds were made available for that purpose, has the Queenland Government drawn on them? I also ask the right honorable gentleman whether the basis of the application made by the Queensland Government in 1960 for funds for drought relief differed from that of the similar application made in 1951.I ask this question because one application was granted and the other was refused.
