Mr Collard (KALGOORLIE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister for Trade and Industry, upon notice:

(1)   Which companies or industries have received research grant allocations through the Australian Industrial Research and Development Grants Board since and including 1967.

(2)   What was the amount of the grant in each case.

(3)   What was the new product or process being developed by the company concerned in each case to attract the grant.

Mr McEwen - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   and (2) Details of payments made to individual companies, and by classes of manufacture or mining activity up to 30th June 1969, are contained in the Annual Reports of the Board already tabled. Payments made from 1st July 1969 to 1st April 1970 are set out in the accompanying tables.

(3)   Companies provide detailed information about their industrial research and development activities to the Australian Industrial Research and Development Grants Board with the assurance that the information will be treated as confidential and will not be made public. This practice is followed because of the commercial importance to the companies concerned of the information they provide to the Board.
