Senator Ronaldson asked the Minister representing the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, upon notice, on 25th November 2008:

For the 2008 calendar year, can lists be provided for: (a) the department’s top 5 program overspends and their costs; and (b) the department’s top 5 program underspends and their costs.

Senator Sherry (Minister for Superannuation and Corporate Law) —The Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry has provided the following answer to the honourable senator’s question:

It is not possible to provide information on program under or over-spends for a calendar year because program funding is provided on a financial year basis.

Program information for a financial year is published in the Department’s annual report.
