Mr Wallis asked the Minister for Defence, upon notice, on 1 7 April 1980:

(1)   What is the present situation regarding plans announced on 4 September 1979 to close the 411 Supply Company Depot at Gladstone, S.A.

(2   ) When is it anticipated that the closure will take effect.

(3)   Have any arrangements been made regarding the future employment of civilian employees on the (a) salaried and (b) wages staff as a result of any closure of this depot; if so what are they.

Mr Killen - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(   1 ) and ( 2 ) It is now planned that 4 1 1 Supply Company at Gladstone will close in early 1981. Ammunition stocks at Gladstone will be redeployed from the end of 1980 following completion of essential technical and security work on the buildings to be occupied at Penfield.

(3)   With the exception of one employee who will retire prior to the closure of the Gladstone depot, all other civilian employees will be offered alternative employment. Where relocation is involved, removal and transfer expenses and, where applicable, allowances under Public Service Regulation 97 will be met from Departmental funds.
