Mr REYNOLDS (BARTON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is addressed to the Treasurer. Do Treasury Regulations prevent the Department of the Army from making a direct exchange of one area of land for another piece held by a municipal council? Do the regulations require the department to make two separate transactions by first selling its property and returning the proceeds to Consolidated Revenue and then purchasing the new site out of its own Budget allocation? Does the Treasurer realize that if this is so the enforcement of such a procedure is preventing the Kogarah Municipal Council, in New South Wales, from making a mutually acceptable exchange of land with the Army in order to establish a baby health centre and other civic amenities on a town site presently occupied by the Army?
