Western Australia

University Buildings Act 1930

An Act to authorize the expenditure by the Senate of the University of Western Australia out of certain trust moneys known as the Hackett Bequest of the amount required for the erection and completion of certain buildings at Crawley, and to provide for the grant by the State of an annuity sufficient to reimburse the University and for other incidental purposes.

[Assented to 22 December 1930.]


    Whereas by reason of taxation imposed under the Dividend Duties Act 1902, the bequest made to the University of Western Australia by the late Sir John Winthrop Hackett, K.C.M.G., LL.D., was reduced by 21,000 or thereabouts, and for the purpose of compensating the University for that loss the Government of the State agreed that it would, on the 12th September, 1930, pay a sum of 25,000 towards the cost of completing buildings at Crawley known as the Hackett Buildings, and on the faith of that agreement the Senate of the University entered into a contract to complete such buildings:

    And whereas, as its own independent contribution to the cost of erecting suitable buildings for the University, and thereby enabling the work of the University to be carried on at Crawley, the Government proposes to pay the cost of erecting at Crawley a further building to house the Departments of Physics, Chemistry, and Agricultural Science:

    And whereas it is now desired to make provision for the payment of the said sum of 25,000 to the University and to provide for the erection of the further building aforesaid.

    Be it therefore enacted by the King's Most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council and the Legislative Assembly of Western Australia, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
