Senator HENTY (Tasmania) (Minister for Civil Aviation) . - I am sorry that Senator Cavanagh did not indicate that he proposed to speak on the subject of housing during the first reading stage of the debate on this Bill. If he had done so, arrangements could have been made for the Minister for Defence (Senator Paltridge), who represents the Minister for Housing (Mr. Bury) in this place, to be present in the chamber to hear what was said. All I can say is that the honorable senator's comments will be forwarded to the Minister for Housing with the request that he reply to them in due course. I repeat that if we had known that the honorable senator wanted to raise this matter we certainly would have extended him the courtesy of having the Minister for Defence in the chamber.
