Senator GIVENS (Queensland) .- I wish to correct a misapprehension in the mind of Senator Payne. I have said definitely that I have no objection to Parliament voting the sum provided in the bill. Indeed, I would willingly vote a very much larger amount. Nor do 1 object to the Victorian Government spending the money in any way it pleases.

Senator Ogden - The honorable senator wishes the Victorian Government to be free and unfettered in that matter.

Senator GIVENS - Yes. My only objection is to the word " memorial " appearing in the title of the bill. If the money is to be spent as has been suggested, I should not like to think that a kitchen would be regarded as a memorial of our occupation of the building.
