Senator DALY (South AustraliaVicePresident of the Executive Council) (3:55 AM) . - It is easy to authorize the raising of meney, but it is not so easy to raise it. The bill merely gives the Government the authority to raise this sum. The difficulty that it is experiencing at the present time is to raise an amount sufficient to carry out other more urgent works. I reiterate what I said previously, that it would be a very good thing for the Commonwealth, if it could secure this particular vessel. At the present time our importations of fish total £1,500,000 annually. That amount could be saved if we could catch our requirements of fish i.u our own waters. The object of inserting this particular item was to empower the Government to expend the amount if it, were available.
