Mr HURFORD (Minister for Housing and Construction)(11.13) —I move:

That, in accordance with the provision of the Public Works Committee Act 1969, the following proposed work be referred to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works for consideration and report: Provision of air conditioning to main instructional building, Schools of Transport and Catering, Puckapunyal, Victoria.

The proposal is for the installation of air conditioning and other control measures in the main instructional building to overcome the unacceptable working conditions that have prevailed hitherto.

The elements of the work comprise: A new central air conditioning plant and ducting; replacement of glazing with reflective glass to reduce solar heat again ; and provision of transportable buildings to enable instruction to continue during alterations. The estimated cost of the proposal at April 1983 prices is $ 2.26m. I table plans of the proposed work. I trust the House will agree to this reference.
