Senator PLAYFORD (South Australia) . - The information I have on this subject is as follows-: -

The site is of the following dimensions : 40 feet g inches in Albert-street, 4r feet 3 inches in Vine-street ; depth, 9,0 feet 6 inches, on which is erected a brick villa of seven rooms, with outhouses. The position is one that is gradually assuming a business importance, being a few steps west of Chapel-street, and nearly opposite the Melbourne entrance to the Windsor railway station. The question of effecting alterations and additions to the present premises was considered, and it was decided that there would not be sufficient accommodation to provide for the extension of the switch board. Another phase of the question was the terms with the Railway Department, and the land required would need to be leased for thirty years, after which the buildings would revert to the Railway Department : notice to quit might be served at any time after the expiry of the before-mentioned period. It was considered undesirable to provide for the switch board extension in the present building, as it was deemed necessary to provide sufficient accommodation to meet future expansion, in addition to present need.

I no information as to the price per foot paid for the land.
