Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - I am pleased to hear the Minister's statement, which suggests that the negotiations for the acquisition of the horse depot have not been concluded. It would be idle for me to say whether or not the land in question is worth £22 per acre. All that I can say is that there is a good deal of land in that country for which £22 would be twice as much as it could possibly be worth.

Senator Pearce - This land is superior to that round about. It is river flat country.

Senator MILLEN - I know something of the country, and though I am not in a position to say that there is not some pocket of land that may be worth £22 per acre, nevertheless the value seems to be remarkably high.
