Mr ROBERTON (RIVERINA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Social Services) - I have vivid recollections of an application under the Aged Persons Homes Act being made by the Methodist community in Toowoomba, Queensland. The application has been considered. I am happy to say that the proposal has attracted a grant from the Queensland Government of some £30,000 which, of course, is not matched by a Commonwealth grant under the Aged Persons Homes Act. The application, excluding the State grant of £30,000, attracts a Commonwealth grant, which has been approved, of some £47,600. The first instalment can be paid at the convenience of the organization concerned. I would be grateful if the honorable member for Darling Downs could represent me at the handing over of the cheque, and I would be particularly pleased if he could arrange for his daughter, with whom I danced during the visit of Her Majesty the Queen Mother, also to be present on that occasion.
