Question No. 214


Mr Reeves asked the Minister for Resources and Energy, upon notice, on 24 May 1983:

What are the total amounts of all expenditures and/or capital works programs undertaken by the Minister's Department in or related to the Northern Territory for each year from 1978-79 to 1982-83 which are not covered by general or specific grants to the Northern Territory.


Mr Barry Jones —The Minister for Resources and Energy has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

The Department's and some statutory authorities' costing and 'production' reporting is not maintained in terms of expenditure in or relative to individual States and Territories. Accordingly crude best estimates have been made by apportioning total Departmental expenditure. These estimates are based on a variety of broad indicators such as elapsed project time and the level of staff involvement as a proportion of total staff time.

The estimated expenditure is as follows:

1978-79-$2,500,000.

1979-80-$2,000,000.

1980-81-$2,000,000.

1981-82-$1,600,000.

1982-83-$1,600,000.
