Senator Mason asked the Minister representing the Minister for Trade, upon notice, on 5 February 2009:

With reference to the Government’s funding of organisations and projects between 3 December 2007 and 20 January 2009: (a) which organisations and projects within the Moncrieff electorate received funding from the department’s Trade Branch; (b) how much funding did each organisation or project receive; and (c) for what purpose was each funding commitment made.

Senator Faulkner (Special Minister of State and Cabinet Secretary) —The Minister for Trade has provided the following answer to the honourable senator’s question:

Any person who meets the relevant criteria is eligible to access departmental and portfolio agency programs and services. To provide the detailed information sought would entail a significant diversion of resources and, in these circumstances, I do not consider the additional work can be justified.
