Dr KELLY (Parliamentary Secretary for Defence Support and Parliamentary Secretary for Water) (10:21 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: Reconstruction of Housing on Larrakeyah Barracks, Darwin, Northern Territory.

On behalf of the Department of Defence, Defence Housing Australia proposes to construct 97 new houses on Larrakeyah Barracks, Darwin, Northern Territory. In its report, the Public Works Committee recommended that these works proceed. Subject to parliamentary approval, construction will commence in August 2010, and the first stage of 69 houses will be completed by December 2011. On behalf of the government I would like to thank the committee for its support and I commend the motion to the House.
