Mr STORRER (Bass) .- Am I to understand that this amount is to be paid out of the funds of the Commonwealth per capita?

Mr Groom - Yes.

Mr STORRER - In Tasmania new post-offices have been erected since Federation was accomplished, and these buildings have been paid for out of Tasmanian funds. Until all these works are dealt with under the per capita system, it seems to me that an injustice will be inflicted upon those States which, prior to Federation, erected buildings, for which they are now receiving no rent whatever.
