Mr CHIFLEY - I know something of the circumstances of the particular case that the honorable gentleman has mentioned, and I recall his representations about the matter. I have not seen the newspaper to which he has referred. Naturally, I am not able to read all newspapers. As a matter of fact, I am sometimes not able to read any newspapers. I am not in a position to give the honorable gentleman a detailed reply to the latter portion of his question regarding policy, but I shall consult with the appropriate Minister and try to let the honorable gentleman have the information that he desires as early as possible.

Mr BLAIN - I preface a question to the Minister for "Works and Housing by pointing out that at present, all homebuilding at Alice Springs is being carried out privately. Will the Minister fix a target of at least ten or twenty house* to be provided for the residents of Alice Springs by the department, and to be allocated by ballot?
