Senator Scullion asked the Minister for Human Services, upon notice, on 4 December 2008:

On what date was the Government first informed that Centrelink must vacate their premises in Currie Street, Adelaide.


Senator Ludwig (Minister for Human Services) —The answer to the honourable senator’s question is as follows:

On 21 November 2008, the landlord served Centrelink with a notice to vacate the building by 24 December 2008. The landlord’s eviction notice was acknowledged on 24 November 2008 and acted upon by Centrelink.

The existing lease at 55 Currie Street expired on 31 July 2008. Centrelink has been negotiating a lease renewal at 55 Currie Street since November 2007, but has been unsuccessful in agreeing to terms with the landlord.
