Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) (Minister of Defence) .-The proposed vote of £14,000, under the heading of" Quarantine, " is to enable works in connexion with the construction of new buildings to be continued. That is to say, no new work is being undertaken. This vote is designed to enable us to carry out work already in progress.

Senator Turley - Where are those works ?

Senator MILLEN - I cannot for the moment tell the honorable senator, but if he is particularly anxious to know, I shall endeaveur to supply him with the information. The proposed vote for lighthouses is only for land. When we reach the division relating to the Department of Trade and Customs, honorable senators will be asked to agree to a proposed vote to provide for buildings. As to the further question put by Senator Turley, I am informed that the Lighthouses Act has not yet been proclaimed.
