Mr GROOM (Darling Downs) (Minister of Home Affairs) . - It is not considered advisable to use the post-office buildings for the purposes of a Customs House. The selection of a site for the erection of the building is now under consideration. No site has been selected, although several have been offered. But the Customs authorities, after careful inquiry, have notified us that the old post-office is not suitable for the purpose indicated, and strong, representations to the same effect have also been made by the merchants of Fremantle.

Mr DUGALD THOMSON (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Is the Minister referring to the building or to the locality ?

Mr GROOM - To both.

Mr DUGALD THOMSON (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - What is proposed to be done with the present post-' office?

Mr GROOM - That has not yet been decided. It may be that the State of Western Australia will take it back.
