Estimates & Committees
Scott Ludlam 20 Nov 2013

Senate Standing Committee on Environment and Communications - Budget Estimates - 29 May 2013 

Senator Ludlam asked: ....I want to ask you about the production facility in Perth. Could you provide us, on notice if you wish, a breakdown on how the ABC Perth production facilities are being used, with particular regard to co-production ventures, the time that it is rented to external entities, the time it is standing empty-I think there are two big stages there-and the time it is being used purely for in-house ABC.

Mr Scott: Yes, we will get that on notice for you.
