Mr WENTWORTH - I can give the honourable member the assurance that the Government is looking with the greatest attention at this and related questions. The honourable member will remember the Prime Minister's own statement in regard to this matter, which is the guide line for the members of the Government who are considering it and who will be making recommendations concerning it. Obviously the question raised is one of policy at the highest level. It would , appear that there is some kind of competition regarding the best application of valuable resources. I can give the honourable' member the assurance, however, that in the words of the Prime Minister, the needy will have their requirements, met, which is a matter of special concern to this Government, and this will be done without impairing the thrift and selfreliance of the community.
