Mr Albanese asked the Minister for Employment Services, upon notice, on 12 August 2003:

Can he provide the parameters and calculations used by the Department to determine the $12.5 million cost of providing early access to job search training for job seekers aged 16 to 24.


Mr Brough (Minister for Employment Services) —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The department estimates that approximately 28,600 young job seekers will commence in Intensive Support job search training each year when early access commences 1 July 2004. This represents an additional 7,300 young people entering Intensive Support job search training each year resulting in an annual cost of $4.16 million a year and a total cost of $12.5 million over three years from 2004-05 to 2006-07.
