Mr CULPIN (Brisbane) .- The proposed vote will be only a small instalment of what is due to Queensland.

Mr Bamford - Yes, and it was very ungracious on the part of the honorable member for Lang to raise any objection.

Mr CULPIN - The proposed expenditure will be very small as compared with that contemplated by the State Government before the Postal Department was transferred to the Common wealth. I should like to know whether sufficient accommodation will be provided by the expenditure of the proposed vote.

Mr Groom - All the requirements of the public and of the departmental officers will be met.

Mr CULPIN - I trust that ample accommodation will be provided for the officers. I understand that it is intended to concentrate the whole of the work of the Department in the one building, instead of having it performed in different parts of the city as at present, and I hope that the proposed additions will be undertaken at once.
