Senator ANDERSON (New South Wales) (Minister for Customs and Excise) . - I gather that Commonwealth Hostels Ltd. comes under the control of the Department of Labour and National Service, although this appropriation appears in the estimates for the Australian Capital Territory. Briefly, my information is that the proposed expenditure relates to a new hostel to be established in Northbourne Avenue. This involves all the embellishments associated with setting up a new hostel. Beyond that, I have no information. There has been a significant increase on last year's appropriation of £20,000, so I shall obtain some formal information on this and supply the answers to Senator O'Byrne's questions.

Senator Wright - How much of the amount represents buildings?

Senator ANDERSON - I may have misled honorable senators. None of it represents buildings.
