Mr Whitlam asked the Treasurer, upon notice:

Can he yet make available the results of the examination of natural disaster relief schemes operated in the United States, Canada and New Zealand (Hansard 26th September 1969, page 2133).

Mr Bury - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

In view of the wide range of natural disasters that have been experienced in Canada and the United States, the relief schemes operating in those countries involve a number of complex arrangements. This has necessitated rather more information to be acquired and more research to be undertaken than was envisaged when the project was first commenced in response to an earlier question by the Honourable Member. Partly because of this and partly because of staff shortages, the examination of the relief schemes operating in these two countries and New Zealand has not yet been completed.
