Mr J R FRASER - My question, which is addressed to the Minister for the Navy, relates to the proposed transfer of the Royal Australian Naval College from Flinders to Jervis Bay. Will the transfer mean that 57

Families now occupying cottages at Jervis Bay will be required to vacate those cottages, without being given alternative accommodation? Will seventeen businesses be forced to close? Will 200 people at present employed in Jervis Bay be thrown out of employment? In fact, will the whole community of 450 people be destroyed? Will the Minister say whether he has yet received an accurate assessment of the cost of renovating the buildings to be used by the college at Jervis Bay? If he has received such an accurate assessment, will he say whether, in fact, the cost will be four times as great as that quoted by his predecessor when the announcement of the transfer was made twelve months ago?
