Mr NELSON (NORTHERN TERRITORY, NORTHERN TERRITORY) - On 28th August I asked the Minister for Territories whether it was the Government's intention to initiate a low-rental housing scheme for all citizens of the Northern Territory similar to the schemes operating in every State in the Commonwealth, and in the Australian Capital Territory. The Minister replied -

A decision in this matter was made by the Government some time ago, and provision has been made in the Estimates for such a scheme.

Since asking the question, I have had an opportunity to discuss this matter with

His Honour, the Administrator, and the Assistant Administrator of the Northern Territory, in Darwin. Both these gentlemen assured me that they had no knowledge of any decision or announcement in connexion with such a scheme. I, therefore, ask the Minister whether he still insists that such an announcement was made, notwithstanding the statements of those two gentlemen.
