Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister of Defence) . - I promised that, on the motion for the third reading of this Bill, 1 would give some particulars in regard to the alteration in Commander Brewis's report on Queensland. I have now to state that the alteration in the report was owing to a technical misdescription from an engineering point of view in regard to the method of improving an existing light. With regard to the figures asked for in respect of certain items I may say that the total cost in respect of item 10 is ?26,450; item 12, ?2,200; item 26, ?2,500; item 32, . ?8,000; item 34, ?2,900; and item 35, ?4,000.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a third time.
