Senator PLAYFORD (South Australia) (Minister of Defence) .- We are not dealing with Victoria at the present moment, but I can inform honorable senators that this is a re- vote on precisely the same lines as before. I have explained that owing to the price of copper we could not get the work done for the money originally voted in the case of New South Wales; and similarly in the case of Victoria, the original sum voted was only £11,000, but it was necessary to increase that amount to £14,000.

Senator Millen - But there is no explanation in the case of Victoria.

Senator PLAYFORD - The only explanation is that the money is marked as a re-vote, but there is an additional sum.
