Mr FREETH (Forrest) (Minister for the Interior and Minister for Works) . -I move -

That, in accordance with the provisions of the Public Works Committee Act 1913-1953, the following proposed work be referred to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works for investigation and report, namely: - Construction of a new Customs House at Melbourne, Victoria.

The proposal provides for the erection of a multi-story office building to accommodate the Victorian branch of the Department of Customs and Excise. The structure will be of steel and reinforced concrete carried on a piled foundation, and will comprise basement, ground floor and first floor, and fifteen typical upper floors and a penthouse floor.

The building will be faced variously with brick, stone and marble, and aluminium will be used for the windows. The preliminary assessment of cost is £1,400,000. I table the plans of the proposed building.
