Mr E G Whitlam (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) am asked the Minister for Environment, Housing and Community Development, upon notice:

What new grants for 1976-77 will the Australian Government now make under the program for Capital Assistance for Leisure Facilities as a result of its examination of the Task Force on Co-ordination in Welfare and Health (Hansard, 6 October 1 976, page 1611).

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

The Task Force on Co-ordination in Welfare, Health and Community Development has produced an interim report only and a full examination of its implications is still being undertaken. The interim report is due to be tabled this week and a follow-up group of officials has already been established for the continuing examination of the reports. The Task Force is now undertaking subsequent consultations with State and other interested groups. The timetable of these activities will obviously preclude any immediate initiatives on those programs in 1976-77 such as the Capital Assistance for Leisure Facilities, which are under review by the Task Force. Consequently I am unable at this time to make any new grants under the Capital Assistance for Leisure Facilities for 1 976-77.
