I move:

That, in accordance with section 5 of the Parliament Act 1974, the House approves the following proposal for works in the Parliamentary Zone which was presented to the House on 27 March 2006, namely: Construction of the National Portrait Gallery.

Because of the significance of this construction, a display illustrating the full scope and design of the proposed works and their impact on the parliamentary zone is currently located outside committee room 2S3, where it shall be displayed until 5 pm on Wednesday, 29 March 2006. I encourage honourable members and senators to have a look at that display.

Question agreed to.
