Ms O'CONNOR - Minister, I want to refer you to an historic radio station in Scottsdale which is one of the last intact radio stations in Australia and it's currently on the market - 32 King Street, Scottsdale. Our information is that the Heritage Council visited this site of an extremely historic radio station two or three years ago, had a look at the collection and found the collection and the interior to be highly intact.

The question is: is this historic radio station on the register? What has happened to the interior? Where has the collection inside that historic radio station gone?

Ms ARCHER - Do we have that information, or do we need to take it on notice, Ms Guerzoni?

Ms GUERZONI - I'll have to take it on notice, but I can say that it's quite a number of years ago now that the member did that visit, and I can remember that person, who is a professional, suggested the collection was highly desirable. I would have to take all the other points on -

Ms O'CONNOR - So you don't know if it is on the register?

Ms GUERZONI - No, not off the top of my head. Sorry, there are -

Ms ARCHER - Five thousand on the register. I haven't memorised it for you, sorry.
