CHAIR (Judi Moylan)—I declare open this public hearing into the relocation of the 171st Aviation Squadron to Holsworthy Barracks, Holsworthy, New South Wales. This project was referred to the Public Works Committee on Wednesday, 12 October 2005 for consideration and report to the parliament. In accordance with section 17(3) of the Public Works Committee Act 1969:

In considering and reporting on a public work, the Committee shall have regard to—

(a) the stated purpose of the work and its suitability for that purpose;

(b) the necessity for, or the advisability of, carrying out the work;

(c) the most effective use that can be made, in the carrying out of the work, of the moneys to be expended on the work;

(d) where the work purports to be of a revenue-producing character, the amount of revenue that it may reasonably be expected to produce; and

(e) the present and prospective public value of the work.

The committee has this morning inspected the site of the proposed works and received a confidential briefing from Defence on the project costs. The committee will now take further evidence on the public record from the Department of Defence, the Cubbitch Barta Native Title Claimants Aboriginal Corporation, the Sutherland Shire Council and the Tharawal Local Aboriginal Land Council.
