Getting rid of Jervis Bay?

By johnboy 4 July 2011 21

The Canberra Times reports that the tiny patch of Jervis Bay administered by the Commonwealth as an addendum to the ACT (it never was much of a port) might be handed back to NSW:

A historic shake-up has been canvassed to improve services in Jervis Bay, amid concerns about a ”poor standard of housing” and challenges to deliver an adequate water supply.

Documents obtained by The Canberra Times under freedom of information laws suggest imposing NSW laws on the area considered part of the ACT was one option to improve service delivery.

Could we swap Jervis Bay for Batemans, perhaps?
