Mr F.M. LOGAN: […] The two major kiln stacks are kiln 6 and kiln 5, and kiln 6 can nearly be seen from here. In any of the buildings on the Terrace and certainly from the twenty-sixth floor—or is it the twentieth floor now? — where the cabinet room —

Mr R.F. Johnson: The twenty-fifth floor.

Mr F.M. LOGAN: I could not remember whether it was the twenty-fifth or the twenty-sixth floor. It seems a long time ago, minister.

Mr R.F. Johnson: How quickly we forget.

Mr F.M. LOGAN: I wondered why I was always late for cabinet; I got off at the wrong floor!

Mr D.A. Templeman: We thought you were the window cleaner.

Mr F.M. LOGAN: That is right; we were in cabinet one day when one of those machines came past doing the window cleaning.

Mr D.A. Templeman: The minister was in it!

Mr F.M. LOGAN: I thought I recognised him — mop in hand!
