(2)   What are its projected arrangements.

(3)   What is the function of each position created or proposed.

(4)   Has the information service compiled a list of various groups involved in urban and regional development including (a) resident action groups, (b) progress associations, (c) local government associations, (d) academics and (e) developers.

(   5 ) If so, will he incorporate a copy of the list in Hansard.

(6)   If not, when will this list be complied, and will he make a copy available.

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

(1)   The establishment of my Department's Information Service has been settled at 17 positions. Eight of these positions have been staffed and recruitment to the balance is well advanced.

(2)   There are no plans to increase the establishment in the forseeable future.

(   3 ) The functions of the various positions are:



(4)   Yes, including (a), (b), (c), (d) and (e)

(5)   The list which is computerised contains several thousand addresses and it therefore would be inappropriate to include it in Hansard.

(6)   My Department is currently examining the possibility of publishing a directory of organisations based on the information.
