Mr BARNARD (BASS, TASMANIA) - I ask the Minister for the Army: Is there a housing shortage in Townsville due in part to the impact of last December's cyclone? Has this shortage been accentuated by demands of army personnel for housing in the civilian sector of the city? If so, can anything be done to relieve these strains by providing more army housing in Townsville?

Mr KATTER (KENNEDY, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for the Army) - I can appreciate the honourable member's interest in this matter. As a matter of fact, it is one of the most dominating problems that the army has in most centres, but it is not quite as accentuated in Townsville. I do not have on hand the detailed information that he requires, but I will provide him with all the necessary information.
