The PRESIDENT - Order! Senator Willesee asks the indulgence of the Senate to add to his answer to Senator Drake-Brockman 's question.

Senator WILLESEE -Thank you, Mr President. I wanted a chance to correct some misinformation which I gave to Senator DrakeBrockman towards the end of my reply. I said that the amounts were not near $24m. I remember signing a document some months ago which to my mind related to about $1 lm. I have had this matter checked. What happened was that there were 2 stages to be developed costing about $10m or $1 lm each. The Department of Works or the Department of Services and Property, whichever is controlling this matter, decided to make it one stage. Therefore the latter part of my remarks was wrong and the cost does approximate $24m.
