Mr L R JOHNSON (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Treasurer. Is it a fact that the Government has announced its intention to limit financial aid to the victims of the Chilean earthquake to a mere £25,000? If this is so, will the Treasurer arrange for Cabinet to reconsider this matter with a view to contributing an amount more compatible with Australia's great sympathy with these victims, and with the national pride and our comparative prosperity?
