Australia’s Prime Minister has been forced to move out of her official residence because the property has been declared a potential fire hazard.
Special Minister of State Gary Gray said the 84-year-old building has a leaky roof, rusty plumbing, wiring that is a fire hazard, and asbestos that needs to be removed.
He said much of the wiring is old copper wrapped in cloth and a substantial fire risk. Gray said: “If The Lodge were a patient it would be in hospital. There is a lot of work to be done.”
Work is expected to take 18 months to complete.
