Senator ST LEDGER (Queensland) . - It is apparent that an important site has been purchased in Melbourne. As the Commonwealth Treasury will ultimately be established at Yass-Canberra, why should we vote so large a sum of money to be spent on a Treasury building in this city ? It is. quite true that, even after the Capital is established, the Treasury will require buildings in the various capitals. But it is unfortunate that a better reason has not been furnished for the expenditure of this large sum in Melbourne. I should like a further explanation with regard to the item.
