Mr FALKINDER (FRANKLIN, TASMANIA) - Will the Minister for Health confer with his colleague, the Minister for Repatriation, in an endeavour to improve conditions at the repatriation head-quarters in Hobart? The conditions for the staff at that place are considerably below standard, the general office is more like a barn than proper accommodation for about 40 persons and the office equipment is antiquated. The reception portion of the building for those who come for interviews has much the same degree of cheerfulness as the Old Bailey. Will the Minister urge his colleague to consider making proper provision for interviews to be held in private and for giving this building a general facelift so that there will be a pleasant and warm atmosphere in this section?
