Mr Les Johnson (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Prime Minister, upon notice:

(   1 ) What plans have been made to build a new and adequate residence for the Prime Minister.

(2   ) What site has been set aside for such a building.

Mr Malcolm Fraser - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   None.

(2)   Suitable sites for such a residence are available, the preferred site being in Yarralumla adjacent to Lake Burley Griffin.

Matters relating to the residence of the Prime Minister are within the scope of the newly-appointed Committee on Official Establishments and I would not want to pre-empt any recommendations they make on the subject.
