Mr REID (East Sydney) . - I suppose that the plant which it is proposed to purchase \\\\\ be useful for the Commonwealth.

Sir John Forrest - Yes ; it is all earmarked, and belongs to us.

Mr REID - I hope that it will be some time before we establish a Federal Printing Office. Printing establishments involve an expenditure of thousands and thousands of pounds, and I think that by a judicious arrangement with the States, which have splendid printing offices, we can get our work done at a much more reasonable amount than we could in a printing office of our own. I agree with the remarks of the Treasurer.

Proposed vote agreed to.

Department of Defence.

Division 7 (Special Defence Material), £130,000.
