Senator RUSSELL (VictoriaAssistant Minister) . - In moving,

That this Bill be now read a second time,

I desire to explain that it consists mostly of small items in regard to works as to which the vote authorized by Parliament has proved to be insufficient. In such cases the deficiency has been made up out of the Treasurer's Advance. It is really to give statutory authority for this additional expenditure that the Bill has been introduced. The whole of the money, I may add, was spent prior to the 30th June by our predecessors.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time, and passed through its remaining stages without amendment.
