Mr Armitage (CHIFLEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Minister for Defence, upon notice, on 20 May 1980:

(   1 ) Is an Australian Regular Army camp to be established at Coolah Valley, New South Wales; if so, (a) what is the area of the property concerned, (b) from whom was it acquired and (c) what was the purchase price.


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

(1)   No. The Army has not purchased land at Coolah Valley. Although there is a Major Army Training Area Study in progress in New South Wales, the study has not progressed to the stage of proposing a new area. Geographical areas for consideration have been identified by the New South Wales Lands Department. An early announcement of any decision should not be anticipated.
