Mr HOLLOWAY (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) -The matter is in hand. The Commonwealth intends to keep its promise to give to the Bankstown Hospital Committee a site equal in area to that' taken over by the Royal Australian Air Force. Difficulty has been experienced, however, in tracing the owners of the blocks comprising the substitute land selected by the hospital committee. Portions of the land are owned by. a number of block holders, among them being five or six ex-servicemen. Efforts are now being made to trace the individual owners in order that arrangement may be made for the purchase of their land. Officers of the AttorneyGeneral's Department are in consultation with representatives of the New South Wales Lands department with a view to ascertaining the names of the block-holders so that their blocks may be purchased at a price mutually agreed upon or other blocks found in substitution therefor.
