(Question No. 1800)

Mr Andren asked the Minister for Administrative Services, upon notice, on 4 June 1 997:

Will he table on a regular basis details relating to travelling allowance payments made to Ministers and Opposition office holders: if not, why not; if so, what would (a) be his preferred regularity of tabling and (b) the process cost.

Mr Jull —The answer to the honourable member's question is:

On 17 June 1997 1 advised the House that the Government will, in future, table in the Parliament on a six monthly basis the expenditure details of all Senators and Members' including Ministers and Opposition office holders, on all air and car transport and related travelling allowances.

The cost of this process is yet to be determined but will include assembling and checking the relevant data and printing documents for tabling.
