Mr Morris asked the Minister representing the Minister for Administrative Services, upon notice:

(   1 ) Did the Grants Commission take into account the disability suffered by the Brisbane City Council in providing an urban public bus service for Brisbane in its last assessment of the claim for financial assistance by the Queensland Government.

(2)   If so, can he say to what extent that disability was taken into account in determining Queensland's claim for assistance.

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

(1)   Yes.

(2)   The Commonwealth Grants Commission's procedure resulted in a modified deficit of $7,085,000 in respect of the Brisbane City Council's transport undertaking for the year 1974-75.

This modified deficit was reflected in its recommendation regarding Queensland's overall claim for financial assistance.
