Senator RAE (New South Wales) . - I do not think that we should get anything for nothing, or that the Commonwealth or the States should loaf on each other, but it seems to me a most unbusiness-like thing to erect a building or make additions to a building which is not to be our property. It would be better to pay rent for the use of State property if we must use it. If a State should take offence at something done by the Commonwealth authorities, or wish to adjust its own business, we might be told to go, and be in the position of evicted tenants.
