Mr SCHOLES (Minister for Territories) —Pursuant to section 5 of the Parliament Act 1974, I present the following proposals for work within the Parliamentary Zone, namely:

Construction of road works and landscaping north of the provisional Parliament House and lighting throughout the Zone;

Construction of an additional car park and lighting in the vicinity of the Treasury Building;

Construction of an additional car park and lighting at the National Library of Australia.

The views of the Joint Standing Committee on the New Parliament House are being sought. When those views are available I shall be in a position to take further action under the Parliament Act to seek the approval of the House for these works.

Motion (by Mr Young) proposed:

That the House take note of the papers.

Debate (on motion by Mr N.A. Brown) adjourned.
