Mr HARRISON (Wentworth) . - I support the points raised by the honorable member for Robertson (Mr. Spooner) and urge that they be given consideration by the Treasurer (Mr. Chifley). Although there has been expenditure on air raid shelters and other precautionary measures, the first air raid on a capital city will immediately disclose the weaknesses of the present structures and these will have to be strengthened to a marked degree. Whereas in the first place they may not have been of enduring benefit, they may subsequently cost so much that, at the termination of the war, the amount that had to be expended on restoring the property to its original condition would be substantial.
