The Committee will scrutinise Defence’s $1.25 billion proposal to build new accommodation for Australian Defence Force Academy trainees.

The second hearing is part of the Committee’s inquiry into the Department of Finance’s Proposed Fit-out of New Commonwealth Parliament Offices, Perth, Western Australia. The Committee will scrutinise Finance’s $38.2 million proposal to fit-out the Western Australian Parliament Offices.
