(Question No. 5203)

Mr Hawker asked the Minister for Arts, Heritage and Environment, upon notice, on 19 March 1987:

(1) When did he acknowledge a letter from the Australian Trust for Conservation Volunteers (ATCV) received by his office on 23 January 1987.

(2) What financial assistance has his Department provided to the ATCV and what will it provide in 1987-88.

(3) Is the Government prepared to assist the ATCV in other ways; if so, in what ways.

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

(1) 27 April 1987.

(2) A total of $16750 was provided during the period 1982-83 to 1986-87. Any application submitted by ATCV for funding in the 1987-88 financial year for grants to voluntary conservation organisations and other programs administered within my portfolio will be given consideration through a comparative assessment process together with those from other applicants.

(3) Requests for assistance by ATCV will be considered on their merits. Future support from other areas of Government is a matter for the responsible Ministers.
