Mr R EDWARDS (OXLEY, QUEENSLAND) .- The present accommodation in the Brisbane General Post Office is utterly inadequate, because, although the building has a very fine appearance, it contains only two floors. As the Minister has stated, the Barton Government decided to erect a new structure, and I only regret that there is not a vote on the Estimates for that purpose, instead of the £8,000 proposed.

Mr Groom - The vote asked for covers as much work as can\ be done during the vear.

Mr R EDWARDS (OXLEY, QUEENSLAND) - I trust that there will be no objection to the proposed vote, because there is no doubt that additional accommodation is required in Brisbane as well as in Melbourne, Sydney, and other places.
