Mr TUDOR (Yarra) - I should like an explanation of some of these items. I notice, for instance, that the expenditure upon fittings and furniture in connexion with the departments of External Affairs and Home Affairs have cost £1,526 in New South Wales, and only about £2,150 in Victoria, where the bulk of the work has been carried on, and where there are probably more officers. Then, again, why should the total expenditure in New South Wales be £35,901, and that in Victoria only £24,680, of which more than one-half is to be expended upon defence works ?
