Mr CAMERON (Wilmot) .- I wish to know whether the proposed work is a new one entirely, or whether a fresh building is merely to be erected in place of an old one?

Mr Groom - It will be an entirely new building.

Mr CAMERON - Has there never been a building there before?

Mr Groom - There has been a Customs building.

Mr CAMERON - Then how can the cost of erecting the new building be charged upon a per capita basis ? To my mind, it is distinctly expenditure which ought to be charged to Western Australia.

Mr Kelly - I suppose that the proceeds from the sale of the old building will be distributed per capital

Mr CAMERON - I should like to know from the Minister whether the proceeds from the existing building will be divided amongst the States upon a per capita basis, or whether the structure will be considered an asset of Western Australia ?
