NOT CORRECT. GERMAN INFERENCES. PERMIT TO AUSTRIA. (Published in "The Times.") LONDON, August 30. The diplomatic correspopdent of "The Times," in an article to-day, em- phasises the point that the facts re- lating to the granting of permission to Austria to enlist 8000 auxiliaries do not correspond with the German inferences. "The permission," he says, "is temporary and conditional for the purpose of assisting the Austrian Gov- ernment to defend itself against acts of violence and intimidation by the Austrian Nazis. The concession is limited to one year, and will not be prolonged if the outrages cease. The permanent conversion of the Austrian long-service axmy into a short-service force can be effected only by the agreement of the Powers represented at the disarmament conference."

£150,000 OUTLAY ON HOSPITAL BUILDINGS. New Women's Hospital; Larger Kitchen and Quarters. City hospital works to cost £150,000 are planned by the Brisbane and South Coast Hospitals Board, and will provide a great deal of employment. They include the new women's hospital, to cost £100,000, and a new boiler-house, kitchen block, and quarters. The erection of a new boiler-house, kitchen block, and quarters for the resident staff at the Brisbane General Hospital, involving £50,000, is contem- plated by the board. In view of the early commencement of the now women's hospital, which, with equip- ment and land resumptions, will cost £100,000, the work is urgent. For some time the kitchen block at the hospital has been too small for the requirements of the constantly en- larging Institution, and congestion has resulted. The new kitchen must be erected before the women's hospital is completed, because the demands upon it will be greatly inci eased. Similarly, a new boiler-house is needed, be...

SET EXAMPLE. Challenge to Members. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 1 September 1933
SET EXAMPLE. Challenge to Members. Mr. J. A. C. Kenny (Opposition, Cook) told Government members In the Legislative Assembly yesterday that they should practise what they preach. During a debate on a motion directed against the tariff policy of the Federal Government, Labour members advo- cated the claims of the Australian tobacco industry to greater considera- tion. Mr. Kenny reminded the Houso of the large amount of imported tobacco that was to be found at the bar in the Parliamentary refreshment room, and said that members who condemned the Federal Government, themselves smoked imported tobacco. He was called to order by the Speaker (Mr. G. Pollock) for saying that those members were guilty of hypocrisy, and Mr. E. J. Llewelyn (Government, Too- woomba) -was asked to -withdraw an interjection that Mr. Kenny's statement was a lie.
