The CHAIRMAN - We have dealt with the Victorian Estimates, and those relating to Tasmania are now under consideration.


Mr CROUCH - I think that I shall put myself in order bv moving that the amendment be so amended as to provide that the £5 by which the item is proposed to be reduced shall be applied to the erection of a clock' in the Geelong Post-office tower.


The CHAIRMAN - Such an amendment of the amendment would be out of order.


Mr CROUCH - Then I shall have to content myself by saying that I know of provision for a clock in a post-office tower, although the space left for its face is still vacant. If the representatives of Tasmania will assist me in drawing attention to the fact that post-office towers in other parts of the Commonwealth also need attention, I shall be prepared to support the amendment.
