Question No. 441


Mr Wells asked the Minister for Science and Technology, upon notice, on 6 September 1983:

What Commonwealth funds, listed by purpose, in the form of (a) grants, (b) subsidies, (c) special purpose grants, (d) dollar for dollar contributions or (e ) other contributions have been partly or totally (i) received or (ii) returned or refused by the Queensland Government from December 1972 to August 1983.


Mr Barry Jones —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

For parts (a)-(e),

(i) The schemes administered by my Department provide grants on a competitive basis for research and industrial research and development. They are normally paid to institutions or individuals rather than State Governments. However under the Australian Research Grants Scheme, Marine Science and Technologies Grants Scheme, and the Crown of Thorns Starfish Research Scheme grants have been paid to such agencies as the Queensland Museum, Queensland Institute of Medical Science, and Queensland Department of Primary Industries. These have been reported annually.

(ii) No grant has ever been returned or refused by these agencies.
