Mr Uren asked the Minister representing the Minister for Education, upon notice:

(   1 ) What was the amount appropriated for expenditure by the Department of Education in the Division of Macarthur in the financial years 1972-73, 1973-74, 1974-75, 1975-76 and 1976-77.

(2)   What was the amount expended by the Department in the Division of Macarthur in each of the same years.

Mr Viner - The Minister for Education has provided the following information to the honourable member's question:

(   1 ) Amounts of expenditure appropriated by Parliament for my portfolio are not allocated by electoral division.

(2)   Details of expenditure by electoral divisions have not been and are not maintained by my Department.

However, some information about expenditure is available for the division of Macarthur as below.

In respect of the calendar years 1974 and 1975 the information can be obtained from Report- States Grants (Schools) Act 1973-74: Financial Assistance Granted to Each State in 1974 and Report-States Grants (Schools) Act 1973: Financial Assistance Granted to Each State in 1975. Information in respect of financial years is not available. The only grants paid direct to government schools are those under the schools Commission's Innovations Program. Grants for government schools in New South Wales are made available to the New South Wales Government. The distribution of grants is left to the New South Wales Minister for Education. In 1976 $83m was advanced to New South Wales for government school programs. The table below details grants paid to non-government schools, and those government schools which received assistance under the Innovations Program, in the electorate of Macarthur in 1976 under programs administered by the Schools Commission.
