Mr FIFE(5.12) —The Opposition supports the motion moved by the Minister for Housing and Construction (Mr Hurford). As a member of the Public Works Committee I took the opportunity to visit HMAS Watson and discussed with the naval authorities and other defence personnel the needs in this area. I was pleased to receive an undertaking from the Minister about landscaping. It was a matter on which members of the Public Works Committee commented. The proposal relates to a beautiful part of Sydney and it is the responsibility of the Commonwealth to do the best it can, both from a defence point of view and also from the point of view of the foreshore and the needs of residents of the area. The Opposition supports the motion.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
