Mr O'CONNOR (DALLEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question to the Minister for Territories is supplementary to the question relating to the Darwin High School, which was asked of him yesterday by the honorable member for the Northern Territory. What is the difference between the cost of installing mechanical ventilation and the cost of air-conditioning, as was recommended by the Public Works Committee? I might refresh the Minister's mind by informing him that the estimated cost of air-conditioning was £109,000. Was expert evidence called on this subject? Who were the experts who recommended mechanical ventilation? Is the Minister aware that expert evidence is available to the effect that mechanical ventilation is no more effective than is ordinary ventilation?
