Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - I move -

That this Bill be now read a second time.

This Bill is supplementary to one we have just passed, covering the ordinary supplementary expenditure. The largest item is a vote to make provision for the purchase of a site to the east of the present Treasury building in Melbourne, and the erection of a building thereon. The building will provide accommodation for the Treasury Department, and some of the other Commonwealth Departments, and it may be used for Commonwealth purposes after the Seat of Government has been removed to the Federal Capital. The object is economy, and it is estimated that the land and buildings will cost £34,000. The passing of this Bill will, it is hoped, complete the provision which will be required for works and buildings during this financial year.
