Senator KEEFFE asked the Minister representing the Minister for the Interior, upon notice:

(1)   Has an air-conditioning plant located in the Bureau of Meteorology building at Cloncurry, Queensland, never been included in an inventory; if so, has this omission led to its improper servicing.

(2)   What is the value of the air-conditioning plant and why was it not included in the Bureau's inventory of plant.

Senator COTTON-The Minister for the Interior has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

(1)   and (2) The air-conditioning plant which forms an integral part of the building at Cloncurry was included as a prime cost item, valued at about $8,000, when the building was constructed in 1952. It is not therefore included in a separate plant inventory. The plant is regularly serviced by the Department of Works on an annual basis and emergency services are arranged as and when required.
