Mr GARRETT (Kingsford SmithMinister for School Education, Early Childhood and Youth) (10:56): On behalf of the Special Minister of State, 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: New forensic facility at Majura, Australian Capital Territory.

The forensic science and technical intelligence capability of the Australian Federal Police is integral to the successful investigation and prosecution of all crime types and contributes to national security and regional capability development outcomes.

The estimated outturn cost of the proposal is $106 million plus GST. Subject to parliamentary approval, construction will commence in late 2013 and be completed by mid-2015.

I commend the motion to the House.

Question agreed to.
