(Question No. 21)

Senator Crichton-Browne asked the Minister for Finance, upon notice, on 22 February 1985:

(1) Which specific charities and non-government organisations received Federal funding in 1984-85.

(2) What amount of Federal funding did each of these organisations receive in 1984-85.

(3) For what specific projects and purposes will these funds be used.

Senator Walsh —The answer to the honourable senator's question is as follows:

Non-government organisations receiving federal funding of some form include business, union, educational, sporting, welfare, consumer, environmental, ethnic and other groups benefiting under a diversity of programs. Extensive effort would be required to identify satisfactorily the bodies concerned. Once identified, further significant effort would be required to identify the specific projects and purposes for which the payments or subsidies were made. The cost incurred in collating that information could not be justified. However details of funds provided to organisations under the Grant-in-Aid scheme are set out in the following table.
