Senator PEARCE (Western AustraliaMinister of Defence) . - Until we secured parliamentary approval for these votes, we could not do anything. As soon as parliamentary approval was obtained, the works were taken in hand ; but they had not been completed before the end of the financial year. Works have not been suspended, however, but we now require Parliament to re-vote the money, which will be spent during the current financial year.
