Senator PAYNE (Tasmania) .- As far as I know there is no municipal authority in Australia administering a housing scheme. In view of the fact that the clause provides that an authority means " a prescribed Commonwealth, Territorial, State or municipal authority, which administers a scheme for providing or assisting in providing dwelling houses," and the further fact that there is no municipal authority in Australia, so far as I know, that administers such a scheme, I should like to know if the Minister can suggest an alteration to the clause by which a municipal authority may be included, if it ever administers a housing scheme.
