Senator MILLEN (New South WalesMinister of Defence) . - The honorable senator will recognise that there is no question of favoritismin the allocation of these votes.

Senator Mullan - I am not raising that point.

Senator MILLEN - The honorable senator asks why it is not anticipated that more money- will be required to be expended in Queensland on post-office buildings within the. next three months. The answer is that such works are not in progress just now. . These votes are intended only to make provision to carry on works now in hand until a new Parliament can provide for additional works that it may desire to undertake during the year. It is apparently fortunate that Queensland is so far advanced in the matter of public works that little money is now necessary to complete them.
