Mr CHIFLEY - My recollection is that in the first place the PublicWorks Committee reported that it would be possible to erect suitable abattoirs at Canberra for about £35,000. Then, with rising costs of labour and materials, the price grew, according to my recollection, to about £43,000. The tenderer who submitted that price later withdrew, and the next lowest tender was about £48,000. In the opinion of the Public Works Committee the work is an absolute necessity, and, I understand, the Minister for Health is arranging for construction to be proceeded with.
