The Government will commence initial work to upgrade Australia's post‑entry quarantine facilities, including preparations to relocate existing post‑entry quarantine stations as current leases expire.

The Government will provide funding to the Department of Finance and Deregulation to purchase land and undertake initial scoping and design work required to address future post‑entry quarantine arrangements. The capital expenditure associated with this part of the measure is not for publication (nfp) as the negotiations will be commercial‑in‑confidence.

The Government will also provide $19.1 million in 2011‑12 to the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry for urgent repair and maintenance work and other expenses at existing post‑entry quarantine sites.
