Senator CHATAWAY (Queensland) . - The Vice-President of the Executive Council has given a most casual reply to the Leader of the Opposition. He has referred to institutions in which blind persons are able to work and earn their living, but the inmates oi these institutions are not the only blind persons in Australia. The accommodation at the institutions for the blind is notoriously insufficient, and therefore a large number of persons have to earn their living outside. There are many blind beggars in our city.

Senator McGregor - They cannot get pensions if they beg in the streets.
