Dr Southcott asked the Minister for Sport, in writing, on 3 December 2008:

In respect of the $8.1 million being provided to national sporting organisations up until June 2010, as announced in November 2008: (a) which national sporting organisations will receive this funding; and (b) how much will they receive in the (i) 2008-09, and (ii) 2009-10, financial years.

Ms Kate Ellis (Minister for Youth and Minister for Sport) — The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

(a)   The national sporting organisations listed at Table A and the national sporting organisations for persons with a disability listed at Table B will be allocated Australian Sports Commission funding in 2009-10 which in part will be sourced from the additional funding announced in November 2008.

(b)   Table A shows the indicative high performance sport grant to be allocated to each national sporting organisation for 2009-10. The Board of the Australian Sports Commission has yet to consider other funding programs for these organisations, and thus their complete grant allocations for 2009-10 have yet to be determined. The Board of the Australian Sports Commission is yet to consider funding allocations for national sporting organisations for persons with a disability for 2009-10.
