Mr SCHOLFIELD - In regard to the contemplated legislation providing for assistance to widows and families, is it proposed to give assistance only through approved societies conducted by friendly societies, to the exclusion of other organizations ?

Mr CASEY - Assistance will not be given through approved societies, whose functions are limited under the act, but through other societies. I suggest that the honorable member will have ample opportunity to discuss this matter when the legislation is before the House.
