Dr Donald Cameron (OXLEY, QUEENSLAND) . - I want only to add a few words to what has already been said. The honorable member for Paterson (Mr. Fairhall) referred to the question of ironing boards and similar amenities, and the honorable member for the Australian Capital Territory (Mr. J. R. Fraser) will, I am sure, be pleased to know that the consulting architect has incorporated the committee's recommendations in this regard into his design, so that they will be provided in accordance with the committee's recommendations. This will result only in the loss of two rooms. The facilities recommended will fit into the same total plan. On the question of a room where films can be shown, there is a room which will be suitable for this purpose. It will have other uses as well, but they will not detract from its capacity to be used as a room where films can be shown when necessary. On the question of safety, as the honorable member for the Australian Capital Territory probably knows, a levee bank is to be erected to make sure that there will be no flooding even in the lower ground floor of the new building. The question of the work being done in two stages, to which the chairman of the committee, the honorable member for Paterson referred, has not yet been finally decided, but it has been considered.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
