Mr Morris asked the Prime Minister, upon notice:

(   1 ) Will he give the cost of running (a) The Lodge and (b) Kirribilli House for the period January- June 1976 as he did for the period July-December 1975 (Hansard, 24 March 1976, page 936).

(   2 ) Why is the appropriation for 1 976-77 for furniture and fittings for official establishments twice as high as the expenditure on them in 1975-76.

(3)   Will he give the separate cost of the furniture and fittings for (a) Government House, (b) Admiralty House, (c) The Lodge and (d) Kirribilli House in 1976-77.

Mr Malcolm Fraser - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(   1) to (3) The Appropriation for furniture and fittings has been increased in 1976-77 to provide for the purchase of essential new items and for the necessary refurbishing of existing items for the four Official Establishments.

In relation to the other sections of the question seeking separate costs for the Official Establishments, I refer the honourable member to my answer to Question 226 (Hansard, 8 April 1976, page 1563). I have nothing to add to that answer.
