Senator WRIGHT (Tasmania) .- 1 rise to direct attention to an item which from a financial and Treasury viewpoint is quite insignificant. I refer to Division No. 831 - Restoration of Sydney G.P.O. Clock Tower. 1 take it that the total expenditure on this project before the current year was £82,538. I should like to be informed whether that is so. I recall the pleasure with which we heard of the proposal to restore this unique clock, as it was described by a former colleague, Senator Robertson of Western Australia. I should like to place on record our extreme pleasure that this work of beauty has been restored. 1 believe that, even though the cost seems somewhat large, as the years go by all those who look upon the structure with pleasure will regard the money as having been well spent.
