Mr E G Whitlam (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) am asked the Treasurer, upon notice:

What authorities are classified as semi-government for national accounts purposes (Hansard, 30 October 1970, page 3 169).

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

Authorities are not classified specifically as semigovernment for national accounts purposes or for public finance statistics and no comprehensive list of public corporations is maintained for these purposes. The public corporations and other extra budgetary units whose accounts are analysed for national accounts purposes are now listed each year in Public Authority Finance: State and Local Authorities (ref no 5.43) and Public Authority Finance: Federal Authorities (ref no 5.12). The following is an updated list. In addition to the units listed there are other public corporations whose accounts are not analysed but are included in the national accounts and in public finance statistics by the approximate method of classifying government payments to them as government final expenditures. Universities and public hospitals are important examples of organisations for which this practice has been used in most cases.
