Mr Everingham asked the Treasurer, upon notice:

Can he say what revenues from the liquor industries accrue to (a) each State and (b) the Commonwealth from each State and Territory from (i) customs, (ii) excise, (iii) licensing and (iv) court fines and other penalties or confiscations, or as a result of breaches of laws concerning the possession, sate, use or abuse of liquor.

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

The Acting Commonwealth Statistician has provided the following tables showing customs and excise relating to liquor for 1969-70 and 1970-71 and taxes relating to liquor for 1969-70 (the latest available), in answer to the honourable member's question. It should be noted that excise and customs duties all accrue to the Commonwealth. The net liquor taxes shown, other than those in the Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory, accrue to the States. State dissection of revenues from customs and excise duties on liquor is based on receipts as recorded by individual Commonwealth Sub-Treasuries.

The Statistician has also advised that separate figures of court fines and other penalties as requested by the honourable member are not available.
