Mr Snedden asked the Minister for Services and Property, upon notice:

What is the equivalent of municipal rates the Australian Government calculated and agreed to pay to local government on housing erected or purchased for domestic purposes during 1972-73 and 1973-74.

Mr Daly - The answer to the right honourable member's question is as follows:

As was pointed out in answer to Question No. 569 (Hansard 15 October 1974 p. 2371), this information is not readily available and cannot be obtained except after consultation with all Australian Government Departments and detailed examination of all the ex gratia payments made.

Thus to obtain a precise figure such as that sought by the right honourable member would be a major task involving much time and effort and this does not seem to be warranted. In the absence of sufficient justification to do so, I am not prepared to divert resources for such a task.
