Mr Enderby asked the Prime Minister, upon no:ice:

(1)   What are the names of all existing Commonwealth statutory corporations.

(2)   Which of them operate outside the Budget.

(3)   What are the names of all non-incorporated Commonwealth, statutory authorities, including such Australian Capital Territory authorities as the Canberra Building Review Committee.

(4)   Which of these authorities operate outside the Budget.

(5)   On what date was each corporation and authority, established.

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

The extensive list which the Honourable Member has requested is not readily available because there appears to be little useful purpose in maintaining the information in this form. I am informed that in order to produce the detail for which he has asked, there would need to be an examination of every Commonwealth Act and Territory Ordinance and of the Regulations .made under those Acts and Ordinances. This would involve considerable time and expense and in the circumstances I am reluctant to authorise the research which would be involved. However, if the Honourable Member has any specific statutory bodies in mind on which he requires information then I will examine the matter and see what can be provided.
