Mr ANTHONY (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Interior) - The provision for financial assistance for people affected by drought applies in the Australian Capital Territory equally with the various States. We have not fixed a definite policy on freight rebates and similar measures for drought relief in the Territory because we were waiting to see what the circumstances would be. I venture to suggest that the drought here has not been as acute as it has been in some of the severely afflicted areas. There would not be many cases in the Australian Capital Territory of severe drought effects, but we shall be happy to examine even isolated cases to determine whether they come within the scope of the approved drought relief measures.
