Mr GRIFFITHS (SHORTLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Prime Minister. In the re-employment of unemployed miners, where local government and other authorities are prepared to raise finance locally for the purpose of sewerage and similar works, will the right honorable gentleman consider rebating to the constructing authority a sum equal to the amount that the Commonwealth would save in the payment of unemployment relief, and gain in pay-roll tax and personal exertion income tax collections, for the purpose of enabling the work to be continued beyond the period for which the finance available would otherwise allow the work to proceed?
