Mr Bevis asked the Minister for Health and Aged Care, upon notice, on 7 June 1999:

Has a Department or agency for which the Minister has portfolio responsibility entered a contract with or made a grant or payment to an organisation registered under subparagraph (a) 188(1)(a) or (b) 188(1)(b) of the Workplace Relations Act 1996; if so, in each case, (i) which organisation, (ii) what sum was received and (iii) in what State or Territory is the organisation located.


Dr Wooldridge (Health and Aged Care) —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

In responding to the question the period involved is taken from 31 December 1996, being the date of effect of the relevant criteria for registration of organisations under the Workplace Relations Act 1996, to 7 June 1999. The relevant organisations are taken to be those registered as at 7 June 1999.

I am advised that contracts, grants or payments made by the Department of Health and Aged Care and agencies include:
