Mr BEALE (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question to the Minister for Works and Housing arises out of a letter which I have received from the Town Clerk of Parramatta, which is in my electorate. The letter states that it has recently come to the council's notice that the Department of Works and Housing has erected a number of timber-framed huts on land at the corner of Kissing Point and Bettington roads, Dundas, for the purpose, it is understood, of housing a large number of new Australians. Oan the Minister say whether the information in the letter is correct, and whether the Department of Works and Housing is erecting the buildings mentioned ? If so, on what authority have the buildings been erected? Why was not the council consulted by the Department of Works and Housing? Will the Minister see that the council is now consulted on the matter, and will he have inquiries made with a view to putting a stop to high-handed actions of this kind if they have occurred ?
