(Question No. 1200)


Senator Patterson asked the Minister for the Environment, Sport and Territories, upon notice, on 8 March 1994:

  (1) Does the department, or any of its agencies, produce electoral profiles (or other like documents) outlining relevant programs, services or other forms of assistance provided in individual federal electorates; if so, when were these electoral profiles (or other like documents) first produced and how frequently are they produced.

  (2) Is a copy of these electoral profiles (or other like documents) provided to the Parliamentary Library; if not, why not.

  (3) Please provide a copy of the most up-to-date edition of each of these electoral profiles (or other like documents) for all federal electorates to the Parliamentary Library.


Senator Faulkner —The answer to the honourable senator's question is as follows:

  (1) The department and its various agencies do not routinely produce electoral profiles (or other like documents), although from time to time, at the request of individual members of Parliament, or to brief the Minister for a visit to an electorate, lists of funding programs available to, and grants made to, organisations and individuals in particular electorates have been produced.

  (2) Copies are not provided to the Parliamentary Library as they are not considered reference documents.

  (3) Not applicable.
