Senator GRANT (New South Wales) . - The work of the construction of the Kalgoorlie to Port Augusta railway is being carried out under the day-labour system. That is the case also with most of the works at present being carried out :by the Federal Government. In the cir"cumstances I should like to know why it is now intended to depart from that system so far as the joinery work of the postal stores, and new works at the Victoria Barracks, Sydney, are concerned. If the Government intend to depart from the day-labour system, I wish to know it, because personally I believe it is the hest system to adopt. I see no reason why it should be departed from in the case of the two jobs I have mentioned.
