Mr FISHER (Wide Bay) . - I think that the honorable member for Bass has clone a public 3ervice in drawing attention to the outrageously unsightly tower of the post-office in the pretty city of Launceston. Apparently the design was prepared bv the State authorities, so that the Commonwealth is to a certain extent relieved from the imputation which would otherwise lie against it. The tower in question is the only eyesore which I observed during my two visits to Launceston.

Mr Henry Willis - Has the tower been built?

Mr FISHER - Yes; and its unsightly appearance is such as to justify the demand that it should either be improved or demolished.

Mr Henry Willis - I do not think that it could be improved.

Mr FISHER - It could be improved with ten pounds of dynamite. It is a most unsightlv tower with which to crown a substantial structure.
