For (a) 2012-13, (b) 2013-14, (c) 2014-15, and (d) 2015-16, what is the breakdown of sub-programs, and their respective allocated funding and administrative costs, in respect of Outcome 4, programs (i) 4.1 Employee Assistance, (ii) 4.2 Workplace Assistance, and (iii) 4.3 Workers Compensation Payments.


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

Outcome 4 programs within the Education, Employment and Workplace Relations portfolio fall within my responsibilities as Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations.

The current and forward estimates (for the period 2012-13 to 2015-16) for each of the programs and sub-programs listed are published in the 2012-13 Portfolio Budget Statements for the Education, Employment and Workplace Relations Portfolio.
