Senator GIVENS (Queensland) . - Senator Reid still seems to be under a misapprehension, and I wish to put him right. I am not objecting to the manner in which the money may be spent. The Victorian Government may spend it as it pleases. I should like to know, however,, what the House Committee of this Par- l iament will have to do with the expendi ture of the proposed vote after we vacate t his building. All we are concerned about is the voting of the sum provided in the bill. The Victorian Parliament will spend it as it thinks best. That is as it should be. Our House Committee has asolutely nothing whatever to do with t he form of the memorial. I repeat that I do not object to the voting of the money; but I do object to the word " memorial " since we should have no voice in the expenditure of the money.
