Senator PALTRIDGE - On 18th May Senator Wedgwood in a question without notice brought to my attention, as the Minister representing the Minister for Housing, a statement by the Victorian Minister for Housing on the rate of lending for home building, and sought information as to whether there had been a recent change in Reserve Bank policy in respect of lending for housing purposes in Victoria and in the other States.

The Minister for Housing has advised me that the Reserve Bank has informed him it has not submitted any request to the trading banks in respect of the volume of their lending for housing and that there has been no change since early 1964 in Reserve Bank policy in respect of lending by savings banks for the acquisition of homes.
