Mr Kelvin Thomson asked the Minister for Transport and Regional Services, in writing, on 14 September 2006:

For each financial year since 1 July 2000, how many sexual harassment claims have been reported in the Minister’s department and agencies.


Mr Vaile (Minister for Transport and Regional Services) —The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

Air Services Australia:

2005/2006: 1

2004/2005: 1

2003/2004: 0

2002/2003: 0

2001/2002: 0

2000/2001: 0

Australian Maritime Safety Authority:

2005/2006: 0

2004/2005: 0

2003/2004: 0

2002/2003: 1

2001/2002: 0

2000/2001: 0

Department of Transport and Regional Services:

2005/2006: 0

The Department did not maintain centralised records of sexual harassment claims until July 2005. The Department is not aware of any claims for previous years and to review files for all locations for prior years to identify instances, if any, would involve a significant diversion of resources, which I am not prepared to authorise.

Civil Aviation Safety Authority:

No claims

National Capital Authority:

No claims
