Senator PAYNE (Tasmania) .- Following the statement of the Leader of the Opposition (Senator Needham) in relation to a financial grant to Western Australia, I point out that there appears on page 378 of the Estimates of receipts and expenditure furnished to us a few days ago, an amount covering a grant to Western Australia, and also on the same page an item relating to- a special payment . of £378,000 to Tasmania. J have hurriedly perused the Estimates of expenditure now before the Senate, but I cannot find any reference to it. I trust the Minister (Senator Pearce) will explain the omission.
