Mr FRASER (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Many land-holders who arenot able to make sufficient land available for three ex-servicemen could make land available for one farm. Can the. Minister say whether the Commonwealth Government prevents the acquisition of properties capable of settling only one ex-serviceman? Is the Government opposed to the acquisition of one-soldier properties, or does it insist that such properties must be balloted for? As the State Act ofNew South Wales contains a provision for an advance of £5,000 for single farm units, why does the Common- wealth Government prevent . that provision from being put into operation?

Mr Anthony - I rise to order. Is the honorable member in order in making a statement that is debatable on a matter that has already been decided by this House?
