Mr Hunt asked the Minister for Services and Property, upon notice:

(1)   Is the partial demolition of Reid House proceed ing in spite of the union black ban placed on its demolition in 1972.

(2)   Will any of the present Reid House site be used for car parking services.

Mr DALY (GRAYNDLER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   No. The union body concerned in the ban is aware of the use to which 'F' Block of Reid House is to be put and does not oppose its removal, which is currently proceeding. The partially demolished block is being removed to Duntroon for use by the Association for Modern Education.

(2)   The provision of car parking in Canberra ls the responsibility of the National Capital Development Commission which is within the area of responsibility of the Minister for Urban and Regional Development.

I am advised that the provision and control of parking spaces in the city is constantly under review. The introduction of paid car parking by the Department of the Capital Territory is awaited before any decisions are made about total provisions in parking.
