Mr CHIPP (Hotham) (Minister for Customs and Excise) - I move:

That in accordance with the provisions of the Public Works Committee Act 1969, it is expedient to carry out the following proposed work which was referred to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works and on which the Committee has duly reported to Parliament:

Construction of archives repository at Villawood, New South Wales.

The proposal includes the construction of a single storey repository and a 2-storey office section as stage 1, and a large 3-storey repository as stage 2. The estimated cost is $4m. In reporting favourably on the proposal the Committee recommended that only air conditioning which will guarantee the reduction of airborne acid pollution to acceptable levels should be used. The Department of Works proposes to measure present pollution levels and estimate future trends prior to preparing detailed designs of the air conditioningplant. The plant will be designed to produce air of purity suitable for long term storage of documents and the installation will be fully tested for performance prior to acceptance from the contractor. Upon the concurrence of the

House in this resolution, detailed planning can proceed in accordance with the recommendations of the Committee.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
