Mr STORRER (Bass) .- After the discussion that has taken place, I do not intend topress my motion. Iwould point out that the situation in regard to the Launceston post-office is different from that of other buildings, since a tower has actually been erected. It was urged that a clock and chimes should be purchased and erected in the Town Hall tower, since that building belongs to the people of Launceston. I resisted that proposal, because I recognise that the post-office is also the property of the people.

Mr Groom - Hear, hear ! We are only trustees.

Mr STORRER - In the circumstances, I beg leave to withdraw the motion.

Motion, by leave, withdrawn.

Proposed vote agreed to.
