Mr Whitlam asked the Treasurer, upon notice:

Has a grant yet been made to any State for (a) swimming pools, (b) child-care centres, (c) civic centres, (d) showgrounds and (e) playing fields as promised by the former Deputy Prime Minister at the General Elections in 1969.

Mr Snedden (BRUCE, VICTORIA) (Treasurer) - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

I am not aware of any promise being given by or on behalf of the Government at the General Elections in 1969 that grants would be made to the States specifically for the particular purposes mentioned by the honourable member. The former Deputy Prime Minister did not make any 'promise' on the matter at that time; what he said related to the policy objectives of his party.
