Estimates & Committees
Scott Ludlam 30 Jul 2012

Economics Legislation Committee - Estimates Question on Notice taken by ANSTO on 28 May 2012

Senator LUDLAM: Okay, if you could. What is your state of understanding of the total cost of the facility, which I understand is just a big shed? Dr Paterson: The entire process-the waste return and the cost for the facility-is not absolutely finalised, as I indicated previously. But we will take on notice what the cost of the physical facility will be.

ANSWER
The 2010-11 federal budget included $4.3 million for the design and construction of the interim storage facility at ANSTO.
