Mr Kelvin Thomson asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 30 November 1998:

(1) Is he able to say whether the Victorian Government intends to change within 12 months the funding source of many nonprofit human services, or charities, from an operating grant to winning a competitive tender.

(2) Will the source of funding effect the GST-free status of a charity.

Mr Costello (Treasurer) —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1) No

(2) The source of funding for a charity will have no affect on the GST-free status of it's charitable activities as it is the nature of the activities that determine treatment under the GST.
