Mr SLIPPER (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Finance and Administration) (4:18 PM) —I move:

That, in accordance with the provisions of the Public Works Committee Act 1969, the following proposed work be referred to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works for consideration and report: Fitout of new leased premises for the Attorney-General's Department at 3-5 National Circuit, Barton, ACT.

The Attorney-General's Department proposes to undertake the fitout of new leased premises at 3-5 National Circuit, Barton, in the Australian Capital Territory. The owner of the current building on the site proposes to demolish it and construct a new office complex, which, on completion, will be leased to the Attorney-General's Department for an initial period of 15 years.

These new premises will facilitate the co-location of departmental functions within the Australian Capital Territory. Subject to parliamentary approval, fitout activities will be undertaken in conjunction with the construction of the facility and all works and fitout will be completed by the end of 2008. The estimated cost of the fitout is $23 million. I commend the motion to the House.

Question agreed to.
