Question No. 352


Mr Ronald Edwards asked the Minister for Sport, Recreation and Tourism, upon notice, on 23 August 1983:

Is the Minister able to provide an analysis of claims for compensation resulting from repetitive strain injury in the Minister's Department for each of the years 1978 to 1983.


Mr John Brown —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The Department of Sport, Recreation and Tourism was created with changes to the administrative arrangements order on 11 March 1983. To date no cases have arisen involving claims for compensation resulting from repetitive strain injury.

With regard to the Australian Tourist Commission and the Australian Institute of Sport, I wish to advise that no such cases have arisen during the period in question.
