Senator MCDOUGALL (New South Wales) . - I desire to ask the Minister for a little information concerning the item of £30,000 for the Military College, construction of quarters for officers, &c. I do not know whether the statement is true or not, but we have heard that palatial residences are being erected in connexion with the Military College for the officers, and also that very expensive furniture is being provided. We are told that they are getting chairs which cost £7 7s. each. I do not know whether that statement is correct or not. I wish to know how much of this money is to be spent on the officers' quarters, how much upon stables, and how much upon magazines.

Suggest corrections
