End of the road for the ‘chook house’
The temporary annex at the back of Parliament House is being demolished as it has gone well past its use-by date.
It was built in the 1970s to provide short-term office space for MPs for around five years but eventually lasted more than 40.
President of the Legislative Council Bruce Atkinson and Speaker of the Legislative Assembly Telmo Languiller were on hand to witness the beginning of the end for the old and dilapidated 'chook house'.
The 'Chook House' in 1985 and today, the President and Speaker look on as demolition begins.
