Mr HAROLD HOLT (HigginsTreasurer) . - I move -

That the bill be now read a second time.

The purpose of this bill is to appropriate £54,988,000 to carry on the necessary normal capital works and services of government for the first five months of the financial year 1961-62. This will enable Commonwealth works to be continued until the 1961-62 Budget has been considered by the Parliament. The bill will provide funds for Commonwealth works in progress at 30th June, 1961. In addition, it is the practice to programme the capital works and services in the major Commonwealth departments, including the Department of Works, the Postmaster-General's Department and the Department of Civil Aviation. The appropriation will provide funds to ensure the orderly continuation of those programmes of work and to continue daytoday puarchases of minor plant and equipment.

Debate (on motion by Mr. Crean) adjourned.
