Mr FRAZER (Kalgoorlie) . - I move -

That the words "or until the Federal City is constructed " be inserted after the word " years," line 4.

I desire to provide that as soon as the Federal Capital is constructed, and accommodation is provided for His Excellency the Governor- General, we shall not be called upon to keep up the present establishments in Sydney and Melbourne. If the Bill were passed in its present form strong claims might be entered for the continued maintenance of these residences. I do not see how the amendment could possibly hamper the Government ; but, on the other hand, I think that it will clearly indicate the intentions of this Parliament.
