(Question No. 4925)


Mr Downer asked the Minister representing the Minister for Education, upon notice, on 20 November 1986:

What amount was paid to each non-government school in the Electoral Division of Mayo in 1985-86 and, in each case, what was the enrolment of the school.


Mr Dawkins —The Minister for Education has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

Commonwealth payments to non-government schools are made under several separate programs on a calendar year basis.

GENERAL RECURRENT GRANTS

Attachment A lists the amount of recurrent grants paid to non-government non-systemic schools and their funded enrolments, in the electorate of Mayo for the years 1985 and 1986.

Attachment B lists the amount of recurrent funds allocated to non-government Catholic systemic schools and their funded enrolments, in the electorate of Mayo for the years 1985 and 1986.

Attachment C lists the amount of recurrent funds allocated to non-government Lutheran systemic schools and their funded enrolments, in the electorate of Mayo for the years 1985 and 1986.

Systemic Schools are those administered by various System Authorities throughout Australia. Grants are paid to each System Authority which allocates funds to its schools according to their needs.

Recurrent grants are paid for each calendar year on the basis of the number of students enrolled at the census date for that year.

Note: The figures provided for non-systemic schools include the supplementary payment made in late December 1986. The figures for systemic schools do not however include this last payment because system authorities have not yet advised the allocations made to individual schools. The December 1986 supplementary payment represented less than 2% of system's total entitlement for 1986.

CAPITAL GRANTS

Attachment D lists the amount of capital grants paid to non-government schools in the electorate of Mayo for the years 1985 and 1986.
