Mr Cornwell.- asked the Minister for Sport -
(1) Are there plans to establish a turf cricket wicket at the enclosed Greenway oval; if so, when; and if not why not.

Mr Berry - the answer to the Members question is as follows:
(1) At this stage no decision has been been made on whether a turf wicket will be included when the enclosed oval is built. The decision to include a turf wicket will be taken when detailed design commences and in consultation with relevant sporting organisations.
(2) It would cost approximately $30 to $40;000 to construct.a turf wicket depending on site conditions. A concrete wicket would cost about $5,000 and a synthetic wicket about $8,000.
