Senator MARRIOTT (TASMANIA) - Will the Minister representing the Minister for Service and Property inform me as soon as possible whether the Commonwealth Government has purchased the Hobart Trades Hall building for approximately $420,000? Was the valuation of this building prior to the Commonwealth offer to purchase it $250,000? Is it a fact that the best offer from a private enterprise buyer was $300,000, indicating a gift of some $124,000 to the Australian Labor Party? What was the Commonwealth valuation and who made the valuation? For what purpose is the building to be used?

Senator WILLESEE -The answer is yes, I will find out as soon as possible and let the honourable senator know.
