Goodman, on behalf of the Sustenance and Furniture Committee, reported that there had been six applications for sustenance, and five had been granted. One was declined as the man was a carter who had refused several jobs. Fifteen applications had been made for furniture grants. Twelve were granted, one declined, one withdrawn and one held over.

It was reported by Mr F. W. Hobbs that 27 applications had been made to the Tools and Equipment Committee. Nineteen were granted, seven declined and two held over.

There were now 84 men on the books who were unemployed. The position concerning clerks was expected soon to be relieved as the wooi season would soon be on.

The repatriation officer stated that in connection with assistance for vocational training 30 applications had been received and 29 recommended. One had been refused, the man desiring a grant of £ls to le.arn to be a biograph operator. It was felt that assistance should only be given in this occupation when a man was unfit. The reports were adopted.
