Mr LEMMON (Forrest) (Minister for Works and Housing) . - I move -

That, in accordance with the provisions of the Commonwealth Public Works Committee Act 1913-1947, it is expedient to carry out the following proposed work which was referred to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works and on which the committee has duly reported to this House the results of its investigations, namely: - Thu erection of a primary school at Darwin.

The existing accommodation for educational purposes at Darwin ' is totally inadequate and the erection of a new school has become necessary to provide teaching facilities for children of school age and for anticipated future requirements. The proposal which is estimated to cost £91,000 was fully explained to the House when, on the 22nd October of last year, I moved that it be referred to the committee for investigation and report. I concur in the committee's decisions and recommend that approval be given to the proposed work.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
