Dr EARLE PAGE (COWPER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Should the local governing bodies in New South Wales apply direct to the Commonwealth Governm ent?

Mr LYONS - We have yet to ascertain the extent of our power to make moneys available direct to local governing bodies. In the meantime these should apply to the Commonwealth Treasury. We shall ascertain whether it will be possible to follow the ordinary course of allocating the moneys to the local governing bodies through the State Government.

Dr EARLE PAGE - Should the local governing bodies submit their own schemes to the Commonwealth Treasury?

Mr LYONS - Yes.
