Mr Beazley asked the Minister Assisting the Minister for Defence, upon notice, on 5 November 2003:

(1) What are the Government's intentions in respect of the Fremantle Artillery Barracks.

(2) Is the Government proposing to require, as a condition of sale of the barracks, the retention on site of the Army Museum of WA.

(3) What resources for the maintenance/restoration of the site have been offered by the Commonwealth, State or local governments.

Mr Brough (Minister for Employment Services and Minister Assisting the Minister for Defence) —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1) and (2) On 17 September 2003 the Premier of Western Australia, the Hon Dr Geoff Gallop MLA, declined the Commonwealth Government's offer of January 2001 to transfer the Artillery Barracks, Fremantle to the Western Australian Government. Consequently, the Commonwealth Government is considering the way ahead for the Artillery Barracks site.

(3) None.
