Mr BARNARD (BASS, TASMANIA) - I ask the Minister for Social . Services a question. Is the Minister aware of any financial difficulties now being experienced by benevolent and church homes in all States, particularly in Tasmania? If so, what is the magnitude of these problems and what proposals does he have in mind to obviate them?

Mr WENTWORTH (MACKELLAR, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Social Services) - I am aware of these problems because some representatives of the homes saw me quite recently. I am unable to give the honourable member information about the methods of meeting these problems because they lie mainly within the domain of my colleague the Minister for Health. I am at present in the process of discussing this matter with him and I shall discuss it further.
