Senator McGREGOR (South AustraliaVicePresident of the Executive Council) . - I move -

That this Bill be now read a first time.

I would remind honorable senators that, as the taking over of the Northern Territory rendered it impossible to put certain items upon the ordinary Estimates, we have been obliged to introduce Supplementary Estimates. The amount which will be required during the current financial year to meet our obligations in respect of that Territory is ,£418,750. The Bill also includes an item of £2,500 for the representation of the Commonwealth at the Coronation in London. A similar sum is provided in connexion with the Scott Antarctic Expedition, and there are various other small amounts which I need not specially mention.
