Mr MORGAN (REID, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Does the Minister for the Army know that families of men away on war service find difficulty in getting suitable homes owing to the housing shortage in city areas, and that the children of men on service have to live in surroundings wholly unsuitable for their upbringing? In view of the fact that there are a great many vacant dwellings in country centres because of enlistments and the drift of munitions workers to the cities, will the Minister consider making these dwellings available for the use of families of service men for the duration of the war? Will the Minister collaborate on this subject with the Decentralization Committee appointed by the Government of New South Wales with a view to evolving a comprehensive scheme to meet the situation?
