Mr HENRY WILLIS (Robertson) . - I should like the Treasurer to give the Committee some information as to the item of ^224 for electric lighting and repairs fit Parliament House?


Sir John Forrest - I can only inform the honorable member that it is the ordinary vote.


Mr HENRY WILLIS - Then it is incorrectly stated, since the word "repairs" appears in the item ?


Sir John Forrest - That is the heading to the vote.


Mr HENRY WILLIS - I thought that possibly there was installed here an obsolete plant which was being repaired at considerable cost.


Sir John Forrest - The vote relates absolutely to ordinary services.
