WA warns na­tional se­cu­rity will be at risk if the work is not brought to Perth, say­ing new war­ships and sub­marines will be de­layed as South Aus­tralia strug­gles to keep up with all of the de­fence work it has been handed.

“The sub­marines are based here at Gar­den Is­land, so it’s op­er­a­tionally and lo­gis­ti­cally sen­si­ble to have the full main­te­nance of the subs un­der­taken lo­cally,” Pre­mier Mark McGowan said.

Sen­a­tor Reynolds said what­ever the de­ci­sion, there would be plenty of work for WA and SA.
