Senator FITZGERALD (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Social Services. Is he aware that in the 1963-64 Budget an initial provision of £15,000 was made for the accommodation of disabled persons but that no grants had been approved to May 1964 and that it is expected now that no advances will be made from this fund? Knowing the Minister's particular and personal interest in handicapped persons, I ask him whether he will look into this matter so that wider scope may be given to the fund and so that centre industries and spastic and sub-normal children's organizations will be eligible to apply for assistance?
