Mr MURRAY (HERBERT, QUEENSLAND) - Can the Treasurer say whether he has received reports on the devastation caused by the cyclone which struck the North Queensland districts of Ayr and Home Hill and south to the town of Bowen yesterday? Has the Queensland Government yet officially advised the Commonwealth that it has decided to give financial assistance to those rendered homeless, or who have suffered severe personal hardship, in this disaster? If this action is taken, will the Commonwealth Government give sympathetic consideration to the making of a similar contribution?
