Mr TURNBULL (WIMMERA, VICTORIA) - Has the Treasurer seen the statement of the Secretary of the Victorian Property Owners Association, Mr. H. P.Higginson, that while a good pre-war home was held down to its 1942 valuation, an inferior one built in 1946can be sold at its cost, which is no less than 50 per cent. above that of the prewar house? If so, does the Prime Minister consider this an equitable state of affairs, and can he say whether the Government proposes to take any immediate action in regard to real estate controls. some considerable time having elapsed since the war ended ?
