Mr ROBERTON (RIVERINA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Social Services) - Similar representations have been made to me from time to time, and to my predecessors, both in the present Government and in the preceding government. I would remind the honorable member for Barton that every State has a department of social welfare, and that these departments in the six States cover certain fields of social welfare. The field referred to by the honorable member is one that has been exclusive to them up to this point, and I do not propose to alter that arrangement.
