(3) What funds, if any, have been expended on this project to date this financial year;

(4) What is the current completion date for this project;

(5) Is the Government still committed to this project.

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) There is no delay with the project. The Government has committed to opening the new glass centre in late 2006, which was established as the appropriate completion date by the design and construction consultants engaged to undertake the project. The project remains on track to meet this commitment.

(2) $417,000.

(3) None to date. The project is currently in final design stage, and I will shortly announce the completion of this phase and the commencement of construction.

(4) The construction phase will be completed in November 2006. Following commissioning of the specialised glass production equipment, the centre will be opened in December 2006.

(5) As a clear demonstration of its very strong commitment, the Government has allocated substantial financial and human resources to this important project.
