Senator PROWSE - The recommendations and conclusions of the Committee are as follows -

1.   The Committee is agreed that the existing postal and telecommunications accommodation is inadequate.

2.   There is an urgent need for the accommodation which is the subject of this reference.

3.   The site proposed is most satisfactorily and logically placed from the viewpoints of customer convenience and operational efficiency.

4.   The Postmaster-General's Department should continually review the adequacy of the site to assess whether future land requirements are being safeguarded.

5.   A functionally efficient and aesthetically pleasing building will result from the proposals.

6.   The erection of the building as proposed is recommended.

7.   The use of copper on a temporary roof is not warranted and the Committee recommends the use of a cheaper appropriate material.

8.   The Committee recommends that an external clock be incorporated in the proposals at a cost of about £500.

9.   The Committee suggests that consideration be given to the erection of a suitably designed metal screen backed by a glass panel in the public external lobby, at street level, at an estimated cost of £2,700.

10.   The estimated cost of the proposed work including the clock and metal screen is £647.700.
