Mr LAZZARINI (Werriwa) (Minister for Works and Housing) .-] move -

That the bill be now read a second time. .

The total appropriation passed by the Parliament for works and services under this heading amounted to £6,277,000. The actual expenditure was £5,705,000 i.e., £572,000 less than the appropriation. Due, however, to requirements which could not be foreseen when the Estimates were prepared, certain items show an increase over the individual amounts appropriated, and it is now necessary to obtain parliamentary approval of these increases. The excess expenditure on the items concerned totals £476,117, and is spread over the various works items of the departments. Any details that may be required will be furnished at a later stage.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Mill read a second time, and passed through its remaining stages without amendment or debate.
