Dr KELLY (Parliamentary Secretary for Defence Support and Parliamentary Secretary for Water) (10:24 AM) —I move:

That, in accordance with the provisions of the Public Works Committee Act 1969, it is expedient to carry out the following proposed work which was referred to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works and on which the committee has duly reported to Parliament: Enhanced land force stage 2 facilities project at Gallipoli barracks, Enoggera, Queensland and other Defence bases and training areas around Australia.

The Department of Defence proposes to undertake the Enhanced Land Force stage 2 facilities project at Gallipoli Barracks, Enoggera, Queensland and other Defence bases and training areas around Australia at an estimated out-turn cost of $1457.84 million excluding GST. In its report the Public Works Committee has recommended that these works proceed, subject to the recommendations of the committee. The Department of Defence accepts and will implement those recommendations. Subject to parliamentary clearance, the project is scheduled to commence in mid-2010 and be completed by late 2014. On behalf of the government, I would like to thank the committee for its support and I commend the motion to the House.
