Question No. 444


Mr Wells asked the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, upon notice, on 6 September 1983:

What Commonwealth funds, listed by purpose, in the form of (a) grants, (b) subsidies, (c) special purpose grants, (d) dollar for dollar contributions or (e ) other contributions have been partly or totally (i) received or (ii) returned or refused by the Queensland Government, from December 1972 to August 1983.


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

Payments to the Queensland Government for the period 1 July 1972 to 31 August 1983 were all in the form of grants and amounted to $83 683 647.

Repayments can only be determined for the period 1 July 1976 to 31 August 1983 due to the normal destruction of accounting records. Total repayments for this period amounted to $1 719 386.
