Victoria University is heading off two other contenders to be the new tenant of Wellington's old Government Building. The Government is negotiating with Victoria University on the price for the long-term lease of the 1870's building, which needs considerable renovation work.

The University plans to move its law school and law library to the Lambton Quay site, opposite the railway station and facing the Beehive.

"It's ideal for the law school because senior students will be close to the courts and Parliament" Conservation Minister Denis Marshall said.

The Government was concerned to restore, protect and occupy the building.

"It's a very, very important building with international significance," he said.

The University plan maintains the exterior while putting the inside to a suitable use.
