Senator NEEDHAM - Under item 1, there is provision for £1,874 for caretakers, charwomen and miscellaneous expenditure; £4,236 for the maintenance of Government House, and £5,575 for the maintenance of Government House grounds. The Minister has not yet given the committee the details of extra expenditure in respect of these items. In addition we have to provide for the maintenance of Government House grounds at both Melbourne and Sydney. This is a vast amount of money to spend on such a small building, an.d, so far as I have been able to follow the Minister, he has not given us the information which we require.
