Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) (Minister of Defence) . - I. move -

That this Bill be now read a second time.

I need only say that hitherto, in obtaining Supply, the practice has been to ask for an unduly large advance to the Treasurer, out of which he was enabled to finance works then in progress. It has been deemed preferable, however, to submit these items separately, so that Parliament may know the several matters in respect of which its approval is sought.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time.

In Committee:

Clause 1 agreed to.

Clause 2 postponed.

Clauses 3 and 4 agreed to.

Quarantine - Lighthouses. - Navigation Act - Perth General Perth Office- New Post Offices, Queensland - Undergrounding of Telephone Wires, Melbourne - Telephone and Telegraph Expenditure - Naval Works- Northern Territory.
