Senator MULVIHILL (New South Wales) - I simply rise at this time to bring before the Minister for Housing (Senator Dame Annabelle Rankin) a study that I would like her to undertake during the next few days. This is a question that will arise on many occasions now. It relates to urban development. In the Homebush West region in New South Wales, where many of the people would probably be occupiers of War Service Homes Division dwellings, the people are menaced by certain State instrumentalities, namely, the new city marketing authority and other attendant groups. [Quorum formed.] I am asking the Minister for Housing to have an examination made of the rights of people who are menaced by State or civic development. As a result of the resiting of high tension wire towers, contracts with the War Service Homes Division and all attendant details could be involved. I content myself with drawing the Minister's attention to a docu ment that she would have received from Mr Hallinan, the Secretary of the Flemington Progress Association. I leave the matter to her, confident that such a survey could produce useful guidelines in future cases of this nature.
