Mr WHITE (BALACLAVA, VICTORIA) - Has the Treasurer received a joint application from the federal councils of the Royal Life Saving Society and the Surf Life Saving Association of Australia for a Commonwealth subsidy to assist them to maintain their gear and to carry out their voluntary work of protecting the public from drowning? The members of those organizations save scores of valuable lives annually, and perform great work in connexion with the national fitness campaign. Their request for a subsidy has been supported by members of all political parties in this Parliament on previous occasions. Will the Prime Minister give favorable consideration to the request?
